Individual Support

We need individuals who share our passion for excellence in dance and in supporting communities to enable this prestigious work to continue.

A one-off donation to the Royal Academy of Dance can help us deliver unique activities that would otherwise not be possible without financial support.

A regular gift will allow us to plan for the future with confidence. Regular gifts can occur monthly, bi-annually or annually and any amount you can commit to contribute will make a huge impact.

Planned gifts – often in the form of legacy gifts – help to secure the financial viability of the RAD and will ensure that we can continue to provide the highest quality of ballet teaching and provide support for bursaries and scholarships to secure the future of the next generation of dancers and teachers.

A gift ‘in-memoriam’ – also known as ‘tribute giving’ – is a way of honouring the memory of a loved one through a donation to the work of the RAD. By choosing in-memoriam giving, you are enabling the legacy of someone you love to support the dancers of the future.
When you choose to support the Royal Academy of Dance, every donation counts and every donor makes a difference.

There are a number of benefits on offer as a thank you for individual support including:

  • Invitations to VIP fundraising events and stewardship events
  • Access to sharings of work and viewings of community projects
  • Invitations to RAD project launches
  • Opportunities to be credited with a thank you (if you wish)
  • Reports on the impact your donation is making to a particular project or fund

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, the Royal Academy of Dance is able to maximise your donation through the Gift Aid scheme. Registered charities are able to reclaim income tax from HMRC on the donation you have made – if you are eligible, every £10 you donate is worth £12.50 to the RAD.

We are working on some exciting individual donation opportunities that will launch later in 2019. In the meantime, contact Matthew Cunningham, Director of Strategic Development and Fundraising, to learn more.
