Thank you for helping us end the year with a bang!
Mixed Blood is truly grateful to all of you who stepped up to help us meet our year-end goal. Because of you we were able to close out our fiscal year with a bang—no whimpers here. Here’s what happened:
- We made our match! The E. Thomas Binger & Rebecca Rand Fund of the Minneapolis Foundation challenged us with a dollar for dollar match and we were able to stretch your dollars,
- We balanced our budget and have are nearly able to retire our building fund debt – whew!
In other news:
- Mixed Blood fulfilled its ambition to live at the crossroads of virtuosity and authenticity via five disparate mainstage shows;
- For its work in Cedar Riverside, Mixed Blood received the two largest grants in its 41 years from Art Place and Kresge;
- We now have new statements of mission, vision, and core values in a comprehensive strategic planning process, forging a bright, if challenging, path for the future.
