Reach Summer Dance Program

While BU provides thousands of dollars in in-kind services for facilities, administrative support, vans, and more, Reach is required to raise revenue through grants, fees-for-service, and contributions. Download a brochure here about the many benefits of the program.

Reach is a collaboration between Mass Movement, Inc. and Boston University, both 501(c)3 nonprofits. You can support the program through either Mass Movement or through Boston University. Either way, 100% of your donation benefits the Reach program and is fully tax deductible.

Here’s a sample of what your gift will provide:

  • $100 – workshop
  • $250 – performance
  • $800 – full scholarship
  • $1,500 – college intern
  • $3,000 – professional staff
