We started with the generosity of an anonymous donor who gifted us a $10,000 matching fund donation. Over 70 individual donors responded to that challenge. With this strong backing we were in a good position to receive grants. We are please to announce we have received a grant from the Ford Family Foundation, and a grant from the Fred W. Fields Fund and the Olsrud Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation. We now have the funding to remodel Rogue Studio.

Construction will start in July. Camps and classes will continue to run during the construction.

Many thanks to the donors and foundations who helped fund our studio remodel!
