Thank you so much to the incredible supporters who have donated since our last update! You fill us with gratitude and inspire us with your support!    

Rochelle and Regan Cox; Winifred J Gillen in memory of Hubert Brasseaux; Michelle and David Horan; Theresa Lynn Landry; Justin Lansing; Gillian Spence; Sara Stack; Becky Timm; Allina Hospitals and Clinics from Sugey McCormack through their Dollars for Doers program; Cargill Matching; and two anonymous donors.

As we approach our May fundraising event, The Art of We: Are More Than One Story, we are working towards our annual goal of $100,000 dollars in individual donations before June 30, 2018. Your donations support the telling of the many varied stories of our community, from the everyday experiences that don’t make the front page headlines to the moments of ordinary human joy and sadness that are not included in mainstream narratives.

Not only does your contribution support our residencies with school classrooms, day programs and community partners, but your donations also help fund our participation in incredible events like the community workshop and upcoming Moth StorySLAM, literally amplifying the voices of individuals with disabilities. (Can we get a mic check!?)

Will you make a tax-deductible gift of $25, $100, $250, $500, or $1,000 today to advance this work?
