Alternative Support

Looking for a way to support Ballet 5:8 without actually writing us a check? We love it when you can manage to support us directly, but there are also some great ways to support us in non-traditional ways.

Amazon Smile

If you didn’t know already, has a program called Amazon Smile where tax-exempt charities can register to receive a portion of purchases made on behalf of the charity. Basically, if you register your Amazon account and select Ballet 5:8, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases back to Ballet 5:8 at no extra charge to you! To register your Amazon account, use this link or search for “Ballet Five Eight NFP” on Amazon’s smile page,

Legacy Outdoor Structures

A representative of Legacy Outdoor Structures, based in Lockport, IL, has graciously connected Ballet 5:8 with the company’s charitable giving program. During this summer’s building and construction season, April – November, 2014, purchases of vinyl fence made through Legacy will result in a 5% donation back to Ballet 5:8. The donations are in the form of a check written by Legacy Outdoor Structures on behalf on the fence purchaser, so you would be eligible for a tax-deductible receipt from Ballet 5:8 for the amount of your donation. Contact representative Tim Jackson for more information at (815) 216 – 7661.

Donation of Goods

Ballet 5:8 is happy to accept, and provide tax-deductible receipts for donated goods as well as financial donations. We can always use basic office supplies (paper, printer ink, etc.) and have a variety of needs for items on a case-by-case basis. Contact us for more information by calling (312) 725 – 4752 or using the contact form here.
