In response to COVID-19 and the many community members affected by loss of income, the Frankie Manning Foundation opened applications for Emergency Support on March 27th and with the deadline closing last Thursday, April 9th.

We’ve received application for Emergency Support from Lindy Hop professionals all over the world. Several of these dancers have been dedicated to Lindy Hop for well over 10 years and have made considerable contributions to our global community.

The members of the Emergency Support Applicant Review Team are processing all of the applications. It’s a difficult job. They’re considering the urgent nature of each request, the impact that the Emergency Support will have on the Lindy Hop professional’s life and the greater Lindy Hop community, and other important factors.

We wish we could provide financial support to everyone. Your donation towards this Emergency Fund will help. Please donate to this important cause here – DONATE NOW
