We're proud of what we do and we're proud of all the people who help us do it.
Grants, corporate sponsorships and private donations are essential to our operations and we offer a number of tax, marketing and other benefits to our supporters. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees and we're always available to present customized proposals to prospective funders. Please get in touch with us if you think you can assist us in our efforts to grow our organization, programs and projects.
