Dear FMC family,

I am proud to announce that Forward Momentum Chicago has received its first challenge grant to support programming from the Reva and David Logan Foundation in the amount of $10,000. This means that for every dollar FMC receives over the next year, the Logan Foundation will match the donation total up to $10,000. 

The Logan Foundation has been a significant FMC supporter for the past four years and we are honored by this generous gift. The combined funds from this challenge grant will go directly towards making FMC’s Mandrake Park and community programs tuition-free for all students. The Mandrake Park program includes free weekly classes in a variety of styles, dance attire, special master classes, field trips to see professional dance performances, citywide performance opportunities for special events, and much more.

We need your help in order to reach our goal. Please consider making a donation to ensure that we continue to bring free dance classes to children in Chicago. Every dollar raised is matched, making your donation twice as impactful. Please help us to continue our mission of bringing dance and the benefits that this art form offers to the children of Chicago.  

Contact me if you would like more information about the program or the process. 

 

Meet Latrice and her motherCandice, from our Mandrake Park program.

Thank you so much for your support,

Pierre Lockett
