Our long-time funder/supporter, The Colorado Grand, gave us a challenge. They have generously given us $573,000 through the years, but in order for us to continue receiving our annual gift from them, we have to raise $80,000 in funding commitments by the end of 2016.
This challenge has actually given us renewed purpose. Not only has it become an opportunity to build on our solid mission of improving the lives of people with bipolar disorder who can’t afford treatment by providing proven evidence-based therapy, it has forced us to look at our deepest values. And it is this:
We believe that every person has the innate capacity and drive to be the best that they can be. With knowledge, support and the right environment, people can thrive. We, at the Sutherland Center, provide individualized treatment programs so each client has the best tools, support and education to manage their bipolar disorder and live a productive life. And we have been helping people for almost 15 years with our scientifically grounded state-of-the-art expertise.
For every dollar donated, $0.92 goes directly to diagnosing, treating, managing and improving the lives of those with this complex and challenging illness, and assisting and educating their family and their friends. Thanks to you, we’re helping people every day to LIVE BETTER LIVES!
Any amount helps, but what will really boost our ability to meet the Colorado Grand Challenge is if you pledge an amount every month. It could be as little as $10 or $15 a month. (That’s 2 or 3 lattes from Starbucks. 🙂 Help us and make a contribution to the only clinic in the United States that treats people impacted by bipolar disorder who don’t have the financial means to get the help they need. Make a difference in someone’s life today. And thank you!
