In order to open up the New York celebration to a few more people, we raised funds to finance scholarships to the event. Frankie 100 organizers set aside a limited number of passes for attendees who have financial need. Your donations qualified for tax deductions through the non-profit Frankie Manning Foundation to the extent allowable in your country.

We’ve already heard about some individuals who could benefit from the scholarships, but if you know of an exceptionally committed lindy hopper who cannot afford to go to Frankie 100 without this subsidy, please contact
