BENEFITING: MCCAULEY FUND TO CURE PARALYSIS INC
Rise Up Gallery is the flagship program of Rise Up To Cure Paralysis, a registered 501c3 non profit organization. We create income opportunities for artists with disabilities by offering a venue in which to showcase their work. We also partner with Hospitals and Physical Therapy Centers to offer art therapy workshops to the disabled community. Recently, we were awarded a Miami-Dade Cultural Affairs Grant, A Quality of Life Grant from the Christopher Reeve Foundation, and the NJ Hero Award from NJ Governor Chris Christie and his wife Mary Pat for our role in improving our local communities.
Our workshops are offered twice a week and normally have 6-12 participants. In total, we have the ability to make a positive impact on 24 participants per week, 96 participants per month, and 1152 participants per year. Our outreach extends to an additional 1000 people annually through our quarterly gallery exhibitions/art auctions (150-250/per event, 4x a year). It would be fantastic if you could be an elite donor/sponsor of Rise Up (see below). Donations are 100% tax deductible
Its generous people like yourself who allow us to offer our services to the community.
