SCDT has managed to ride the wave of Covid changes and although we are still programming classes, workshops and performances, our attendance and revenue have been cut by almost 50%.
NOW, SCDT needs your support! We are aiming to raise $10,000 by Dec 1, to support operating costs and continue programming BEYOND the pandemic. Generous donors have offered to match $10,000 of funds raised by December 10!
THIS IS WHAT YOUR SUPPORT HELPS US TO CONTINUE TO CREATE!
