2015 Fundraising Letter

Hello Brio Friends!

In 2014, Americans gave a record $358.38 billion to charity, up 7.1 percent from the year before, according to the Giving USA Foundation. You may be thinking that most of this money came from mega gift givers. Here’s the real answer…. a whopping 72 percent of the total came from individuals just like you!

For the past eight years, Brio Integrated Theatre has been working hard to provide accessible arts programs to people of all ages and abilities. We have expanded our reach by offering an internship program that provides an opportunity for employment to adults with special needs who are in competition for jobs in an extremely competitive job market. We also continue to offer free community workshops so that everyone has access to an inclusive arts program.

Brio Workshops and events

Brio has been blessed with a wonderful group of people who work to help us achieve our mission and are committed to the work that we do. Without them, we cannot possibly continue the work that we do.

As you can imagine, many expenses are connected with running this organization. We know that there are many wonderful causes to give to and we hope that you will consider giving what you can to Brio.  We count on people like you and we would be most grateful for your support which will be greatly appreciated and well used. Remember, every donation makes a difference!

We invite you to ask any questions, drop by our office, or join a community workshop to learn more about us and the work we do. We appreciate your help and we look forward to hearing from you!

Wishing you all a happy holiday season and best wishes for a peaceful New year!

With Gratitude,

Sahar Ahmed
Executive Director
