We receive funding through grants, individual contributions, corporate giving, special events, and fundraising event patrons as well as donations of goods and services. We are honored and humbled by your support.
Grants are the lifeblood of an organization. We have been honored to receive grants from public funds and private foundations. From 2010 through August of 2020, Breanna’s Gift has received grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) to help support our program. These grants are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from MRAC, thanks to a legislature appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
Applying for a grant from The Beim Foundation was a new undertaking for Breanna’s Gift. We are excited to announce that our request has been accepted and we are the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the foundation. This funding will help support our programming from June – December of 2019. We would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to The Beim Foundation for helping us bring smiles to the faces of children with cancer and other serious illnesses.
When children learn that Breanna’s Gift brings the arts to children with cancer and other serious illnesses, they are remarkably compassionate, creative and generous in their donations. They have developed fundraisers that include lemonade stands, bake sales and 5K runs. Kindergarten children have donated their Sunday School contributions to us. Perhaps you know of budding philanthropists who would enjoy the energy and creativity that goes into supporting a good cause! Here are some ideas.
Breanna’s Helpers have spent hours putting together Art Takeout projects for kids that are too sick to leave their hospital rooms to join our group classes. They also made tutus, collected art and dance supplies which have been donated to Breanna’s Gift for our program classes. Thanks to each and everyone of these groups from the Girl Scouts, to DeLaSalle’s Art Students and Chanhassen High School Dance Lines.
We have been privileged to receive support from corporations and organizations through direct contributions, company fundraising events, patronships of our yearly Breanna’s Star event, corporate giving programs and donations of time. We’d love it if you would consider hosting an event in support of our programs! Here are a few examples of how others have helped.
And last, but most certainly not least, individual donors have been incredibly generous in their continued support of our organization through donations, class sponsorships, silent auction donations for fundraising events, dance shoes and costumes, art supplies and gifts of time and talent. We don’t know what we would do without you!
