The activities of Japan Contemporary Dance Network as a nonprofit organization are made possible through:
 1) Membership fees
 2) Government and private foundation grants and corporate sponsorship; and
 3) Revenue from its projects.
JCDN's arts organization activities include projects that are planned and held independently by JCDN, projects organized for other organizations, a range of services for JCDN members and information for the general public. As well, as a nonprofit organization, JCDN is committed to developing a cooperative information system to improve access and services for dance audiences.


Membership : JCDN's essential base of support
JCDN is a nonprofit organization that depends on its members for support of its activities. JCDN has three different levels of membership (described below). The funds collected from membership fees, along with grants, gifts and sponsorship, cover JCDN's basic administrative expenses and staff salaries, support the trailblazing work of dance artists and organizers all over Japan and make possible JCDN's online event reservation service and the continued distribution of contemporary dance information in Japanese society. Please note that JCDN membership is available only to citizens and residents of Japan and to Japanese citizens living overseas.
