The William J. and Dorothy K. O'Neill Foundation together with an Anonymous Donor have honored the Pillow with their resounding vote of support: a challenge to raise $150,000 by July 31, 2013. All new and increased gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Your gift makes it possible for us to: 

  • Present amazing work by renowned artists.
  • Offer free outdoor performances.
  • Provide worldwide access to our dance archives online.
  • Train the next generation of professional dancers.
  • Ensure the only National Historic Landmark dedicated to dance thrives for future dance lovers.

The stakes are high, and the deadline of July 31 is soon. Please give now so your dollars will be put to work right away!

As an added benefit, gifts above $150 receive a beautiful photograph of Jessica Lang Dance from their debut Pillow performance (pictured above), captured by Festival Photographer Christopher Duggan!
