Why Give?

For over 24 years, White Bird has been able to shape the Portland dance scene only with the strength and support of our generous donors. From bringing world-class performances to our city, to providing dance education in our community, White Bird wouldn't be what it is today without your help. We currently receive no revenue from ticket sales, so we rely heavily on individual contributions to continue operating at even our current, scaled-down capacity. 

At this challenging time for all arts organizations, White Bird would especially appreciate your support.

All gifts large and small are welcome.

Please let us know if you would like to donate in memory of someone.

What You're Supporting:

As the sole dance-only presenter west of the Rocky Mountains, White Bird has brought over  250 dance companies  from around the world to Portland since 1999. 


White Bird has commissioned over 38 new works by local and national artists. 


Through programs like NEST and Arts for All, we keep community at the heart of what we do.
