$5/month can make a difference!

The Frankie Manning Foundation is the worldwide swing dance community’s non-profit organization dedicated to Lindy Hop. Our mission is to carry on the work and the spirit of Frankie Manning in spreading the joy of Lindy Hop, danced to big band swing music, throughout the world.

Your generous donation supports our:

  • youth initiative
  • ambassador scholarships
  • research funding
  • emergency and special circumstance drives (such as for Mabel Lee, Chazz Young, the Dawn Hampton memorial, etc.)
  • other lindy hop programming

We’re asking for your donation, and it couldn’t be easier!

A recurring donation of as little as $5/month can make a huge impact. Your support keeps Frankie’s dream alive, helps youth, and promotes Lindy Hop in underrepresented communities and around the world!
