BIPOC Youth Scholarship Fund

BIPOC Youth Scholarship Fund

For Giving Tuesday on December 1, SANCA is asking for donations to support a new scholarship for BIPOC Youth. All donations received on December 1 up to $6,000 will go exclusively to this fund that provides circus classes and training to BIPOC youth in our area.

SANCA is committed to the idea that circus is for everybody. We have given over $2 million worth of scholarships to underserved youth in our communities in our history. Recently, the COVID pandemic has forced SANCA to limit scholarships for the first time ever. But with your help, we can turn that around as we head into the new year.


The BIPOC Youth Scholarship Fund will provide full and partial scholarships to promising young individuals who want to learn and grow in circus. The Fund will provide classes to BIPOC Youth, as well as access to the youth performance troupe, Celestial Circus.

If the Fund is filled to the maximum at $6,000, you will help us provide scholarships to 5-10 BIPOC students for an entire year of circus. Please consider making a gift on December 1 to support this important initiative at SANCA.

Thank you!




“Training at SANCA has helped me improve my circus skills. It has also helped me to make friends who are diverse like me, find amazing coaches, find a place where people are nice to me, and accept me. SANCA is a place that feels like home!”
