20TH ANNIVERSARY – BEADS MAKE IT BETTER
Did you know the very first Beads of Courage program debuted in 2003? That makes 2023 our 20th Anniversary and we invite you to celebrate with us all year long! We will reflect on our accomplishments of the past 20 years and, more importantly, those of the courageous children and families we have helped along the way. We will also share what’s coming up next for Beads of Courage, including unveiling an exciting new Donor Hall of Fame, and raising funds to sustain and grow our meaningful mission along with finding our “forever home” in Tucson!
Forever Home Fund
There is no greater way to prepare for our future than to find our forever home. We need your help to make this dream a reality.
Sustaining Programs Fund
Help us establish sustaining funds to support each of our five core arts-in-medicine programs in more than 400 children’s hospitals worldwide.
