What Is Give Out Day?

Give Out Day

Give Out Day is a national day of giving to LGBTQ organizations, hosted by the Horizons Foundation. Prize grants of up to $10,000 are are awarded to the organizations with the highest number of unique donors who give $10 or more to an organization between June 1 and June 30, 2020.

Our goal is to get 1000 unique donors. We initially thought 500 would be enough, but not this year. We have recently been bumped out of our first place standing. Help us get back on top!

We need YOU to donate $10 on the Sundance Give Out Day portal by 9 pm PDT June 30. Get a few friends (who haven’t already donated) to give $10 too! You can even create your own fundraising page if you want.

The Sundance Association for Country-Western Dancing is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of country-western dancing for the LGBT community and its friends. As an all-volunteer and community-supported nonprofit organization, the Sundance Association fosters individual growth and passion, encourages volunteerism and philanthropic giving, and strives to create an inclusive and welcoming community.

All donations are 100% tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.

FAQs For Donors

We are no longer collecting donations for Give Out Day.

If you would like to make a donation to the Sundance Association, we encourage you to use our COVID-19 RELIEF FUND.


How do I donate? Click on the green DONATE NOW button on this page, or copy and paste this link directly into your browser: Then click on DONATE.

When should I donate? Although Give Out Day itself is June 30, you can donate any time from June 1 through June 30 (9:00 pm PDT) for your donation to count towards our goal.

Can I donate more than $10? Yes. For your donation to count towards our goal, the minimum donation is $10. Larger donations are welcome. You are also welcome to donate multiple times, but you will be counted only once as a unique donor. Still, Sundance benefits from the donation itself.

Can I donate less than $10? Donations less than $10 are not encouraged, as these will not count towards our unique donor goal.

Does all of my donation go to the Sundance Association? Yes. The sponsoring organization is the Horizons Foundation, and the donation platform is Mighty Cause, so you may encounter these organizations as a part of Give Out Day. But all of your donation, minus a small service fee, goes directly to Sundance.

Will I receive a tax receipt for my donation? Yes. Your donation is 100% tex-deductible tp the maximum extent allowed by law. A receipt will be sent to you by email immediately after your donation is completed. If you do not receive this, check your spam folder. If you still can't find it, check with Mighty Cause support at

Can I donate multiple times using different names? No! Our donor list will be culled to exclude duplicate names, email addresses, and credit cards.

Can I make an anonymous donation? Technically yes, but please don't, as it will not count towards our unique donor count. You can, however, choose for your name not to be publicly displayed, which is not the same as making an anonymous donation.

Do I have to donate online? While accommodations can be made to donate by cash or check, it's complicated, and we aren't assured that the donation will count towards our "unique donor" goal. Contact or call 415-820-1403 for more information.

Can my Sundance membership donation count towards Give Out Day? Yes, but if you use the Sundance Give Out Day page to make a membership donation, please email us separately to tell us your intent. If you do this, we recommend that you donate $10 through Give Out Day and the remainder through normal channels, which will help keep our fees low. You can, for example, even donate $10 now and apply it to a future membership renewal. Just make sure we know this is what you want.

What happens to my donor information? The Sundance Association will receive this information. We will not use this data unless we need to contact you specifically about your donation. The Horizons Foundation and Mighty Cause will also receive this information. Our understanding is that you may receive email news about Give Out Day from them, and you can unsubscribe. Your information will not be shared.

Advice For Fundraisers

We encourage you to solicit additional donations from friends and family. The simplest way to do this is to send them the link to our Give Out Day donation page directly:

Or you can send them to this same page that you are viewing now, if you think they will want more detailed information:

You can also set up a personal fundraising page. This personalizes your appeal, and you'll be able to track folks who donate on your behalf through your page. We have a template to get you started, and depending on how much personalization you want, it can take anywhere from about 10 to 30 minutes to create the page. If you like, we'll create the page for you. Ask us how.

If you decide to create a personal fundraising page, please read through the instructions we've prepared below. We want to make sure your personal fundraising page is linked to the Sundance Association, and there are some settings you need to revise so your donors have the proper experience.

Please remember that we are especially looking for unique donors, and that different names with the same email address or credit card will be flagged as duplicates.

Setting Up A Personal Fundraising Page

It is not necessary to create a personal fundraising page, but you can if you want your fundraising to be more personal. This is helpful too, if you have many people to contact.

Setting up a personal fundraising page is easy. We have a template with most of the information filled in. But we were not able to fill in everything, so you will need to enter some information and make some adjustments.

If you wish, we can set up your entire page for you. First, create an account using your email address and a password you're willing to share with us. (***Don't use Facebook or Google to log in.***) Then contact us with this information, and we'll do the rest!

For do-it-yourselfers: we have detailed instructions in pdf format. And although there are 7 pages of instructions, it should go fast. At the very minimum, be sure to include the following:

The most important steps are:

  • Start at the right place to link your page to Sundance. Start here:, and click on the FUNDRAISE button.
  • Create an account.
  • Build your main fundraising page. We've done most of this for you, but not all, and you may wish to change our default text and settings.
  • Set up your donation payment page. You should set the minimum donation button to $10.
  • Create a custom URL that you can send to folks, with the format
