Momentum Fund: An Exciting Opportunity to Quantify Your Support of SDHS

The Society of Dance History Scholars is pleased to continue accepting contributions to the Momentum Fund, designed to promote the mission of SDHS to advance the field of dance studies. Begun by an outstanding $10,000 challenge grant offered by previous SDHS president Susan Manning, and seeded by monies from the Selma Jeanne Cohen bequest, this board-directed fund allows flexibility as we navigate the complex waters of non-profit intellectual labor in 2012 and beyond.

All contributions are tax-deductible to the maximum allowable by U.S. law as a 501(c)3 organization.

To contribute to the Momentum Fund send a check or money order made out to Society of Dance History Scholars with “Momentum Fund” in the memo line and send to:
