Bridge Builders Luncheon 2019
April 24th | Frist Art Museum
Your Generosity Raised Over $45,000 at the inaugural Bridge Builders Luncheon! Thank You!
It was a wonderful day at the Frist Art Museum, and we all enjoyed the comic stylings of Wink Smith, the beautiful exhibitions on view in the galleries, and, most importantly, learning more about the life-changing work of our agency from our beloved and powerful client Rita Clark.
Special thanks again to our Event Co-Chairs Courtney & Jason Ross and Alex & David Sadler and to our generous sponsors: DVL Seigenthaler|FINN, HCA | TriStar Health, Elmington, AmazonCares, Meharry Medical College, Southern Bank of Tennessee, and Pinnacle Financial Partners. We are especially grateful to our presenting sponsor LifePoint Health.
Bridges for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is supported by individuals, corporations, foundations, and special events. We are also supported by many kind, talented, and generous volunteers, both individuals and groups.
Our volunteer hours were valued at $76,290 in 2018-2019. We love our volunteers!
Revenues & Expenses
We are fortunate to have a strong earned revenue stream through our program work in interpreting as well as camps and classes. Our long-term goal is to grow our fundraising to match these program revenues to support expanded and deepened programming for the Deaf and hard of hearing community. Over the past year, we have been focused on diversifying and growing our fundraising, and we are excited about the results to date and look forward to more success in the future. Nashville and Middle Tennessee are exceptionally generous communities, and we are thankful for their investment in our mission.
