Thank you for making 2012 yet another remarkable year for Conscious Alliance! This year marked a decade of service for the organization. Our dedicated staff has done an incredible job at expanding our outreach while strengthening our programs and services.
We have once again been able to increase the value of services delivered directly in the field by 25% to a total of $603,800.
A few program highlights include:
· Hosting 84 food drives nationwide
· Providing over 130,000 meals to those in need through food drives and partnerships with natural food companies
· Developing a series of artist workshops for at-risk youth designed to inspire creativity and teamwork
· Partnering with a sustainable housing service-learning program that taught students from the Pine Ridge Reservation and the University of Colorado how to build energy-efficient homes
· New partnerships with Alanis Morissette, Wilco, and Warren Miller Films
· The largest Holiday Meal Delivery to date
· Successful ‘Art That Feeds’ tours with both The String Cheese Incident and STS9
Our ongoing goal is to keep our overhead low while increasing our service in the field, and you truly make this possible! Conscious Alliance is stronger than ever due to our continually expanding community who comes together to donate time, resources, and talent in support of our important mission. This year alone we worked with 24 bands and musicians, as well as 21 festivals; our artists donated over 68 posters designs for our ‘Art That Feeds’ Food Drives; our volunteers logged over 5,000 hours; our Board of Directors has helped us dramatically increase our donor base; and our Advisory Board has assisted us in expanding our hunger relief and youth empowerment programs.
Thank you for wholeheartedly being a part of the Conscious Alliance movement. We are looking forward to much more in 2013!
