An enthusiastic thank you to our amazing community of supporters! Because of you, we closed the gap in individual donations, ended our fiscal year with a balanced budget, and started the new fiscal year on the right foot. With your support, this year we are on track to reach more individuals than ever, together growing a culture of inclusion far and wide.

It takes nearly one million dollars each year to bring high quality arts programming to schools, day programs, and community spaces so that we can work with and alongside over 3000 people annually. Your commitment covers 10% of that total, and already, starting July 1, 2019, your support has started to close our funding gap for this fiscal year, which now sits at $97,534. We’re honored by your dedication and ongoing investment.
