SANCA’s Fall Fundraising Drive

For any student, circus classes provide fun, exciting opportunities that are physically challenging, creative, and inspire confidence. But for some youth, SANCA is something more:

“I was suicidal, weighed down by depression all day . . . the only place I felt happy anymore was at SANCA. It was my escape, my refuge, my home. I finally had a place where I was loved and respected not only as a student but as a friend.” — A teen at SANCA

SANCA is a safe harbor where youth can build friendships and confidence, and have teachers who support them in a safe environment. You can continue to make this possible.

The COVID pandemic has changed everything for us all, impacting the vulnerable among us the most. But you can make a difference today in the life of a child who needs the safe harbor, healthy activities, and creative outlet SANCA provides.

SANCA responded to the COVID crisis with online classes offered free of charge during our closure from March to June. We modified our facility to hold responsible, socially distanced, safe classes following Public Health guidelines. We maintained scholarships for youth . . . and now we need your help.

Will you help our community through this crisis today? SANCA must raise at least $45,000 to continue healthy, creative circus classes into 2021.

  • $50 Gives a student a 2-hour circus class.
  • $200 Covers two months of our registration software subscription.
  • $300 Covers the monthly cost of cleaning supplies.
  • $520 Gives a full week of circus camp to a student!
  • $1,000 Helps keep our circus programs available for our community, or covers the cost of equipment upkeep, registration software, needed repairs, safety checks, and more.

Make your gift of support for all of SANCA’s programming today to give access and opportunity to youth in Seattle who need the benefits of circus the most. You can help our circus community through this crisis.

With deepest gratitude,

John Tannous
