Steps to success

It will take all of us. Every audience member. Every SLI alum. Everyone who has danced with UBW as a member of The Company or as a participant in a BOLD workshop. Every person who has been inspired by the work UBW creates year after year. Everyone who has a personal philosophy, career or view of the world shaped by UBW.

Together we will make the UBW Homecoming: Sustaining the Legacy Campaign a success. How will you play your part?


donate to the ubw Homecoming campaign

Over the next two years, we will be asking our UBW friends, fans and family to make a donation to the UBW Homecoming Campaign. Gifts of every size will help us reach our goals to create new work, strengthen the SLI and BOLD, and bolster UBW's infrastructure. Here is how you can help:

  • Make a Monthly Gift: You can maximize your gift to UBW by committing to a monthly donation. Your gift of $10, $15, $20 or more every month will provide much needed consistent support to UBW. Use the DONATE button or text GIVE to 347-767-4408 to make a recurring gift (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually). 

  • Make a Major Gift: To create transformational work, UBW will need transformational gifts. Please consider a gift or pledge of $2,500 or more over the two-year period of the campaign. Your gift can be made in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments.

Giving a contribution is a vitally important way to show up for UBW. Your participation is truly key to sustaining UBW's legacy! 




The UBW Homecoming Campaign is activated by UBW's network of friends and donors across the country. There are many ways to be a part of this activation by volunteering to serve on a committee, hosting an official fundraiser event - online or in person, identifying prospective individual and foundation donors or attending an event.

National Committee Members:

  • Provide strategic guidance on the UBW Homecoming Campaign and the UBW Homecoming 2019 and 2020 events. 

  • Help identify and cultivate donors at the $2,500 major gift level and above.

  • Give or pledge a major, endowed, or planned gift. 

Regional Committee Members:

  • Regional committees are planned for Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, North Carolina (Triad, Charlotte), New York (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Westchester County), Washington, DC, Richmond and New Jersey.

  • Regional Committee fundraising events can include house parties, wine nights, salons, online campaigns, or brunches and can be organized around a scheduled UBW performance. UBW will provide planning guidance, UBW swag and specialized content for your UBW fundraising event.  

  • Build local communities of UBW friends by helping to identify and cultivate UBW donors.

Campaign Volunteer/Supporter:

  • Host a UBW Fundraising event - If you do not live in one of the campaign regions, you can still host a fundraising event or an online giving campaign. UBW will provide planning guidance, UBW swag and specialized content for your UBW fundraising event.  

  • Attend a Fundraising Event – UBW Friends and family can attend UBW Fundraising events tied to performances around the country, regional UBW Fundraising events around the country, or Salons and UBW Homecoming events hosted in NYC. 

  • Come to a performance and bring a friend!

  • Tell your network about UBW. UBW's next donor or foundation funder might be someone already in your network. Introduce or re-engage your friends and connections to UBW. We will provide guidance and campaign materials to share.
