Galas & Events

THANK YOU! You helped us raise $20,477 in 24 hours, including direct contributions and matching gifts.Y our investment makes an incredible impact in the lives of our students and makes a lot of things possible at SANCA. We’ve already given $98,438 in scholarships to 419 youth who want to take classes at SANCA during the first five months of 2019. Those numbers will more than double by the end of the year.

Support from GiveBIG also helps fund social circus program partnerships with 13 schools and community organizations such as Beacon Hill International; the Broadview Shelter; Delridge, Garfield, and South Park Community Centers; Maple Elementary; Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club; Refugee Women’s Alliance, and more.

Exciting opportunities for our students this year include sending a small team of eight students from our Social Circus Program to the Chicago Social Circus Festival at the end of June. This 10-day trip will give them an amazing experience working with artists and professionals from Cirque du Soleil. Then in August, 17 members of SANCA’s Cirrus Circus and Nimbus Circus youth performing troupes will attend the American Youth Circus Festival in San Diego for five days of circus workshops along with a chance to learn new skills, create bonds of friendship with students all across the nation, and perform in front of a nationwide audience of circus peers.

All of this is not possible without the support of our community. Thank you!
