Dear Friends of the IDII,
As you may know, the IDII is proud to present once again The Festival for the Reinstatement of the Delphic Games 2017 in Delphi, Greece from May 26th through 31st. Based on the ancient tradition of the Delphic Games, which was singular in its correlation of music, theater, dance, poetry and song to sport, our five-day modern festival will revive the innate power and energy of the games through youth leadership initiatives, world-class adult educational forums from an international array of experts, performances, and the activation of classical ideas as catalysts for a new impetus to excellence among visiting enthusiasts, students and local inhabitants. Through specialized festival events in collaboration with the town of Delphi and the Delphic Ecumenical Union, we will reach beyond the competitive impetus alone. We will forge a supportive forum for learning, creation and participation in the enlivenment of art and ideas on many levels of expertise. Honoring a four-year cycle, it is our sincere intention that with your help the successful installation of this year’s event will allow further Delphic Reinstatements in the future to grow into a lasting realization of The Games.
Your sponsorship is critical to the success of The Festival for the Reinstatement of the Delphic Games 2017. The generosity of sponsors, such as yourself, enables us to provide scholarship support to diverse students of The Delphic Ideal Young Laureate Program and to defer operating costs so that funds might enrich more fully the festival experience for students and the Delphic community alike. Through the IDII, your support would allow young leaders to learn, experience and incorporate the foundational knowledge of the classical world into their lives, providing pillars for future success.
We would be most grateful for a contribution on your behalf and would be honored to add your name among our donors that include, in prior years, the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation, Jerome L. Greene Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and others. With permission granted, your name would be highlighted as a valued funder during all events and in publications related to the Festival as well as in general IDII promotional materials. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
With sincere thanks and gratitude for your continued support,
The Isadora Duncan International Institute
