Dear San Diego Contra Dancers,
Where else but contra dancing can you get three hours of ear-to-ear grinning, great live music, aerobic exercise, and camaraderie for only ten dollars?
To make the dances accessible to the largest number of people, we intentionally keep the admission fee as low as possible. But the admission fee only barely covers the basics: caller, band, sound person, and rent. For all other expenses, we look to the generosity of those of you who can afford a little more.
That’s why your contra dance organizing committee is writing to ask you for a “contra-bution.”
Here’s what we can do with your donations:
To acknowledge your generosity and express our gratitude for your donation, we have a special gift for you—your very own San Diego Contra Dance name button, with a custom design created for us by one of our members! Make a one-time donation of $25 or more, or a recurring monthly pledge of at least $5, and receive your personalized name button.
One-time donations can be made online via PayPal or credit card, at the following levels: $25, $50, $100, $250, or $500. Recurring monthly donations can also be made online, but require a PayPal account, which you will have the opportunity to set up during the checkout process. Monthly donations can be made at the following levels: $5, $10, $25, $50, or $100. To donate online, please use the form below; select either the “One-Time Donation” or “Recurring Monthly Donation” option, and go from there.
If you would rather not donate online, and/or you wish to make a one-time donation for an amount other than those shown above, please download and print this donation form and pay by check.
Many thanks in advance for your generosity and involvement! They are much appreciated.
