Donor User Agreement Terms and Conditions
When giving a gift through power2give, you are making a gift to the Arts & Science Council (ASC), a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, whose mission is to build appreciation, participation and support for arts, science, history and heritage in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. It is the Arts & Science Council’s intention to honor the expressed purpose of your gift by directing those dollars to the organization and project of your choice. ASC is serving as the fiscal agent for The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs (DoCA), a governmental agency.
For questions about your gift, please contact us at 305-375-4634 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can at any time request a written financial statement disclosing the purpose for which funds are raised, the total amount of all contributions raised, the total costs and expenses incurred in raising contributions, the total amount of contributions dedicated to the stated purpose or disbursed for the stated purpose, and whether the services of another person or organization have been contracted to conduct solicitation activities.
Financial information about this organization and a copy of its license are available from the State Solicitation Licensing Branch at 1-888-830-4989. The license is not an endorsement by the State.
DONATION TO CHARITIES
All donations made through power2give are final and non-refundable. power2give allows a number of charities that are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), as tax-exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code to post charitable projects to be funded through donations to the ASC through power2give. Your donations for these projects are made to ASC. As required by the IRS, ASC has exclusive legal control over the donation. We understand that you would like your contribution to benefit your designated nonprofit(s) and ASC makes every reasonable effort to respect the wishes of its donors. However, to comply with federal tax laws, ASC must retain the authority, discretion and control to spend its funds as it sees fit.
Typically, twelve percent (12%) of each donation is retained by ASC to cover credit card transaction costs, the maintenance of the site and other expenses incurred to operate the site successfully. For a limited time, beginning March 1, 2014, Miami-Dade County is underwriting these fees as an incentive for all posting organizations, allowing 100% of each contribution to go directly to the project poster. All funds raised will typically be disbursed within fifteen business days after the project “expires” from the site or it is fully funded (whichever comes first). A project has 90 days to be funded through power2give, and after those 90 days, the project “expires” and is no longer able to accept donations. If a project is not completely funded, ASC will generally still provide the funds donated to the project sponsoring organization to be used in the discretion of that organization. In such event, the project organization may follow up with donors who gave to that project to explain how that donation will be used.
When you make a donation, you grant us permission to access your donation records at any time. We will make available to the project-sponsoring organization online reports identifying, when available, the name, address, email, and transaction accounting details of the donation.

Keep the music LIVE for Opening Night at Miami City Ballet!
“Dance audiences, I believe, have now got used to taped music, and you can get used to it, the same way you can learn to eat Spam instead of ham, or breathe smog instead of air. Your life is just diminished, and you don’t realize it until you see concerts such as we saw.”
— The New York Times
From concert-going, to dancing with friends, to watching an opera or ballet, LIVE music enhances a cultural experience. The pairing of LIVE music and dance tantalizes both senses of sight and sound, creating a powerful impression for the audiences, dancers and musicians involved. An orchestra elevates a ballet performance to higher artistic levels.
Yet, hiring an orchestra is one of Miami City Ballet’s largest expenses, costing approximately $10,000-$15,000 per performance. Through Power2Give and with your help, we can raise $10,000 to fund the orchestra during opening night of the ballet’s 27th season in Miami.
If you make a gift NOW, your donation will be matched by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as part of the Knight Arts Challenge, which has helped make live music possible at Miami City Ballet's tri-county repertory performances for the last two years. In 2012-2013, a $300,000 grant pledged by the Knight Foundation will again be instrumental in the return of the orchestra; however, it must be matched before we can receive the award.
Like “Spam instead of ham,” the difference in using live music versus taped is clear. Will you help us bring back the symphonic power of the orchestra by making a gift today?
Miami City Ballet extends a special thanks to its supporters who will help us bring back the orchestra for opening night of our 27th season.
In recognition of your tax-deductible gift, you will receive an exclusive invitation to attend a free rehearsal during 2012-2013.
