Dear <<First Name>>,

As the first month of the new year comes to a close, all of us at Elevations are energized with a renewed commitment to increase our ability to help more children get the therapy services and home therapy equipment they need. We are so grateful that you are reading this and continue to be a part of helping these children reach their full potential.

A quick recap of 2022: Our third grant cycle awarded 67 grants totaling $44,100.00 bringing our total grants awarded in 2022 to 187 grants totaling $118,751.00. With the cost of everything going up, we anticipate even greater requests in 2023 for families to be able to keep their children in the services they need.

With this in mind, our board and staff gathered on January 7 and set some ambitious goals for 2023. We looked back over the last few difficult years that brought uncertainty to the foreground and discussed how we can move forward stronger than ever. The children and families we serve are counting on us and we won’t let them down. Your continued support is what makes this work possible. Thank you.

The video below from current and former board members truly speaks to the heart of Elevations. If you would like to be a part of something special, we are actively recruiting additional board members and plan to add 4-5 new members this year. Our first and foremost requirement is a strong commitment to our cause with needed skill sets as a secondary. We are excited to announce our newest board member, Rob Wulf of Specialty Home Products. Look for his official welcome next month. If you would like information on how to apply to join our team, please reach out to our Board Governance Chair, Chanda Neu, at

Community fundraisers organized by our community members is another area of focus for 2023 -  everything from facebook birthday events, to small business partnerships, to private fundraising events, to our current See’s Candy Valentine’s Day fundraiser that ends tomorrow (information below). See some past events and find more information/ideas about hosting a fundraiser here.

We are also looking forward to our two signature fundraisers:
  • Stache Dash is back on June 10 with an added half-marathon and kids run. Early registration is open now. (more information below).
  • Save the date for Ghost Ball on October 28, 2023. After our first year in person and at a new venue, we have lots of idea to make 2023 even better.
Here’s to a great 2023 for all,
Mary Anne Ruddis
Executive Director
