The impact that we have on children, teachers, schools, families, and the community at large is only possible because of the support we receive from private donors, foundations, and grants.

Beginning in 2018, we received funds from and established a partnership with the LilySarahGrace Fund. This is a special partnership that is very close to our heart as this organization was founded in honor of three incredible young girls who all learned differently and loved art. This fund is focused on bringing arts integration into education, and it is an absolute honor to partner with them as we continue to work toward changing the way that teachers teach and students learn, creating a more inclusive and accessible landscape for education.
In addition to the incredible support we’ve received from the above grants and partnerships, we have humbly benefited from incredibly generous donations from private donors. This local support is so important to us as donations of all sizes are greatly appreciated and help to engage our community.
If you would like to donate to Side x Side, we welcome your support.
