  • Make a personal or business contribution of $600 or more, AND
  • Serve as a brand ambassador by promoting Deeply Rooted to family, friends and colleagues.

Harvesters who meet the requirements receive:

  • A gift bag distributed at the Harvest Group Celebration
  • Fulfillment in knowing that you have supported Deeply Rooted Dance Theater in its rich contributions to the cultural, artistic and social landscape of Chicago, America and the world.

Deeply Rooted exists because there is a community that believes dance is fundamental to humanity. Your support is vital to actualizing the creative process on stage. We hope you accept our invitation and JOIN THE HARVEST GROUP TODAY.
