Dear CJ Families,
Every year, Circus Juventas enriches the lives of hundreds of Twin Cities youth. For some, it’s a place where they can learn about drive, dedication, personal challenge and long-term goals. For other children, it’s a place of safety, of support, and of promise.
Circus Juventas serves almost 500 students with special challenges and financial needs. Our coaches, programs, facilities and curriculum support these special needs, and help transform difficult situations into new levels of success for these young people.
From the bottom of our hearts, thanks go to everyone who donated generously to our 2015 Gala-every gift of time, financial donations and attendance helps all of our students, and we couldn’t do it without you. But we can always do more.
Please consider us during tomorrow’s statewide Give to the Max Day fundraising extravaganza! As you know, Circus Juventas provides unique arts programming that focuses on developing essential life skills while giving world-class circus arts training and performance opportunities to all of its students.
Through your support, we continue to elevate the programming we provide, including specialty classes, guest artists, scholarship funding and production support.
Watch this video to hear Circus Juventas family stories, and to see how our work profoundly affects the students in our big top. In the words of one grateful parent:
“Imagine what it takes the leaders and the staff and the faculty of this organization to create [programming] every moment, all year long for 1000+ children. It’s an incredible amount of work and I believe that it’s possible because it’s a nonprofit organization that relies upon all of our hearts to invest in it as something we don’t want to take for granted. So we essentially have to contribute to it and invest in it to keep the sanctity of what we have created here.
If we don’t, we risk losing that.”
