Rhythm Relief Fund

In May of 2020, Rhythm Relief was created by Nick Williams in cooperation with PSDF to provide financial support to members of the swing dance community affected by COVID-19. In May of 2021, we decided to make the Rhythm Relief Fund a permanent program of Pacific Swing Dance Foundation—it’s clear to us that our community needs ways to raise and distribute financial support when disaster strikes. When you contribute to Rhythm Relief, your money is used to make grants to members of the swing dance community when they need financial help and to maintain the capability to respond in special circumstances. A portion of the funds—between 10% and 30%—are also used to help PSDF pay for the administrative expenses of a non-profit business. Those expenses cover things like accounting and financial compliance, paying administrative staff, IT expenses, etc.

Nick Williams, in partnership with the Pacific Swing Dance Foundation, is throwing a spectacular live-stream swing show coming straight to your home. The purpose of the benefit show is to raise money for full-time swing dance instructors and full-time musicians who have been financially hit by Covid-19. The money raised in the show will compensate the performers for their time, and all additional funds raised will go to a fund for dancers and musicians. Any full-time dancer or musician will be able to apply for the funds we raise through PSDF.

Complete details are available at our Rhythm Relief page.

Patrons at or above the $50 level will receive an enamel pin from Pacific Swing Dance Foundation.
