Support Us

For over 25 years, White Bird has brought world-class dance performances to Portland, Oregon. Since our first presentation in 1997, our action has grown to include educational outreach, ticket equity initiatives, and numerous partnerships with community service organizations. Today we are among the largest dance organizations in Oregon and the only dance-specific presenter on the west coast of the United States.

As a non-profit organization, White Bird relies on generous donations from dance lovers like you! The complexity and scale of our productions are vast, and only 40% of our total revenue is from ticket sales. Thanks to your support and that of other generous donors, we have been able to uphold our commitments to the community.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all donations made to White Bird are eligible for tax deduction to the fullest extent of the law in accordance with Code Section 170. White Bird's Tax ID number is: 93-1263353.
