Dear William Penn Foundation Board of Directors,
We, the dance community of Philadelphia, write you in response to the sudden dissolution of Dance/UP resulting from the discontinuation of its William Penn Foundation funding. This vital service organization, thanks to seven years of your support, has become indispensably woven into the fabric of Philadelphia dance. In order to ensure the continuation of crucial programming developed by Dance/UP we are making a heartfelt request that the William Penn Foundation provide six months of transitional funding, making it possible to migrate Dance/UP’s programs to the stewardship of other organizations.Read more and sign the petition here.
