Dante or Die is a registered arts charity and a not-for-profit organisation. We spend many hours of many days fundraising to make our projects turn from ideas into a reality. Not surprisingly, it takes thousands of pounds to run workshops in leisure centres around the country to invite local people to be part of a show, or to pay twelve actors to rehearse and perform a new show. Any donation goes into making the work happen.
We are hugely grateful to the trusts and foundations that support Dante or Die's work.
We're currently supported by the Garfield Weston Foundation and the John Ellerman Foundation through a multi-year grant, which is an absolutely lifeline to the organisation. Huge thank you to Garfield Weston Foundation for this investment.
