Thank You to Our Funders

With more than a million students statewide lacking access to needed after-school and summer programs, we are proud of the efforts we’ve made to extend the benefits of these programs to our local students.  It is essential that community members work together to continue this summer initiative.

The Garden of Fire is made possible by the generosity of the following funders and supporters:
