Frequently Asked Questions

1. How will the event work? 
While this year may look different, our goal remains the same!  Although our dancer’s won’t be dancing at the mall, we will still move forward with our online fundraising and fun challenges for top fundraising teams and individuals. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to support True Friends and the children and adults with disabilities they serve. The Dance With Courage fundraising event begins on February 16th and runs through February 28th at 11:59 p.m.!

2. Can I still register? 
Online registration begins Tuesday, February 16th. This year registration is free. If you register by Thursday, February 18th at 11:59 p.m. you will receive an extra entry to win a private lesson with a Dance Art Centre dance instructor (see FAQ question 11 for more details on prize drawing). 

3. Will there be an event t-shirt for DWC 2021?
There will not be a 2021 DWC event t-shirt, but we plan on having one in 2022! 

4. Will there be piggy banks?
There will not be the usual battle of the pigs or piggy banks this year. 

5. Will Dads and Daughters be participating?
Since we aren't dancing this year and won't be having a 2021 event t-shirt, dads won't need to register. We do encourage dads to support their daughter's fundraising efforts by donating and sharing their fundraising page with others.   

6. How can I make a matching gift from my employer?
If your employer provides a matching gift opportunity that’s great! Here’s the steps to do it:

  1. Click the box, “This donation can be matched” when making an online gift to DWC. Enter the matching company and the matching donation amount.
    NOTE: after making your donation you will receive an auto-email thanking you for your personal gift and listing its gift summary details (at the very bottom of email. This is proof of your personal donation that your employer can then match).
  2. You will need to follow up with your employer to secure the matching gift. You’ll need to fill out your employer’s required paperwork which typically asks for True Friends EIN (Tax ID #): 41-1543013, contact info: True Friends 10509 108th St NW, Annandale, MN 55302, 952-852-0101,, and proof of your donation. For proof of your donation, use a copy of your auto-email thank you and gift summary.
  3. There will be somewhat of a lag from when you initiate a matching donation to when it shows up in the dancer’s fundraising thermometer. Please email that you’ve completed the matching gift paperwork (or if you have any questions on completing it). Once you’ve confirmed the paperwork has been completed, the matching gift will be officially confirmed and will reflect in the fundraising thermometer. The matching gift check from your employer typically takes a few weeks or longer to be received at True Friends, but this way if we know the paperwork is completed, we can confirm the donation and count it towards your dancers’ fundraising totals.
