Nestled amid the beauty and splendor of the Colorado Rockies, the Vail Dance Festival, with all of its artistry, excitement and international appeal, is heralded as one of the world’s most treasured summer dance events. Cancellation of this summer’s Festival created a significant financial challenge for the Vail Dance Festival. Our success today and into the future greatly depends on the strength and support of everyone in our dance community.
Dancers, musicians, choreographers and performing arts production professionals are experiencing catastrophic loss due to the cancellation of all performance opportunities for the foreseeable future. The Vail Dance Festival is stepping up to provide disaster and hardship relief grants to those facing dire financial hardship due to COVID-19 through our Artist Relief Fund. This fund will support individual artists and production team members who have participated in Festival performances since 2018, including those we had hoped to join us in Vail this summer and those who are a part of the 2020 Digital Edition.
Ten percent of all funds raised in support of the Vail Dance Festival from June 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020 will be designated for the Artist Relief Fund and will be distributed based on an objective determination of need. Individual artists and production team members who have participated in Festival performances since 2018, including those we had hoped to join us in Vail this summer and those who are a part of the 2020 Digital Edition. Due to the magnitude of this crisis and the impact on the performing arts, we anticipate more requests for funding than there are funds to distribute. We know that every gift will make a difference and help support our artists. The application for funds will open on August 15, 2020.

Vail Valley Foundation Community Fund
In addition to arts, athletics and education, a critical role of the VVF, in good times or bad, has been and always will be, community. COVID-19 has impacted everyone, but for many in our community, the impact of coronavirus has been catastrophic. We must help and help now. Therefore, on April 22, the Vail Valley Foundation launched the Vail Valley Foundation Community Fund, supporting four areas of critical need in Eagle County due to COVID-19: Food Insecurity; Mental & Behavioral Health; Shelter, Clothing & Household Assistance; and Youth Education & Programming in Eagle County.

If a donor is giving to VVF through an entity in which you have already received a tax-deduction, such as a Private Foundation, DAF, Charitable Trust and/or if a portion of your gift is being made through a Matching Gifts Program, there may be restrictions specific to receiving benefits. Please contact your tax-adviser if you have questions regarding your specific situation. The Vail Valley Foundation cannot knowingly facilitate a donor receiving an improper tax deduction or other benefit nor can we knowingly accept a gift that would result in impermissible private inurement or private benefit, an “excess benefit transaction” (as defined in section 4958 of the Internal Revenue Code), or self-dealing (as defined in section 4941 of the Internal Revenue Code).
