Annual Grand Jeté Giving Campaign
The Gand Jeté Campaign helps the school “leap the gap” between operating expenses and earned income. Each year we depend on the generosity of our community of dancers, family, and friends and for the past three years have received donations of $50,000 each year. CLICK HERE to learn more about this year’s campaign.
December, in the spirit of the holidays and The Nutcracker season, is a great time of year to think about giving. Keep MYB in mind at the end of next year and consider giving a tax-deductible gift!
Does your employer have a matching gift program? Many companies will match charitable donations made by employees to nonprofit organizations dollar for dollar, enabling you to double your contribution to MYB. Inquire with your employer about their matching gift program so that you can maximize the impact of your donation!
Consider targeting your donation to one of the following funds:
Peter Fonseca Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Peter Fonseca Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Tensia Fonseca’s late son. Peter trained under Tensia at MYB and went on to become a leading soloist with the American Ballet Theatre. It is the hope that this fund will enable MYB to award a scholarship to one or more deserving boys in the Academy each year.
Jamie Fonseca Scholarship Fund
The Jamie Fonseca Scholarhip Fund was established in honor of Tensia Fonseca’s late husband Jimmy, known to his family and friends as “Jamie”. Jamie worked for the Costa Rican embassy but shared Tensia’s love for ballet. He was often found around the studio playing the piano for classes helping in any way he could as an active member of the MYB community. This fund was set up to provide scholarship funds each year to one or more deserving MYB female students in the Academy.
