Your support is our resilience

Your support of us has been so incredible that we're setting our 2021-2022 fiscal year goal at $120,000. This year is our first millon dollar budget year as we invest in our Staff, Teaching Artists, and organizational infrastructure to offer multi-platform programming to our disability community through in-person, remote, and hybrid options. With more accessible and open-to-the-public options than ever before, we are looking forward to deepening existing relationships and expanding our reach beyond what we knew was possible before the pandemic. 

One of the best ways you can support us in this growth and grounding year is by becoming a Steady Eddy monthly donor. Monthly 
donations of any size go a long way in what we can imagine, plan for, and adapt with.
