Hope Bridges Society

Lend a Hand

Thank you to our generous donors and sponsors

It is through your support that Hope Bridges continues to serve the town of Strathmore and surrounding area. Your generous financial donations and your ongoing gifts of time and talent allow us to offer inclusive workshops where adults may connect and find friendship through the universal language of the arts. We would like to acknowledge our supporters and donors and offer sincere gratitude for making Hope Bridges programs and events a success.

A Word from our 2017 “Artists Among Us” Gala Sponsor:

Chinook FinancialMaking Money Make a Difference

Access to the arts enriches our lives. Extending that access to adults who face a range of isolation issues spurs their imaginations, enhances their ability to express themselves in playful and creative ways, and creates a lasting positive impact on our communities.

Our support of Hope Bridges Society for Creative and Continued Learning stems from our shared passion to make a lasting, positive impact on the community that we’re all proud to call “home”

From all of us at Chinook Financial, thank you for the opportunity to support this powerful work in the Strathmore & Wheatland County region!
