Your donation makes a difference!

For the past 15 years, disability service organizations in Minnesota have endured funding freezes and budget cuts. As a result, Bear Creek Services has become more reliant on donations to fully fund our programs.

In 2018, the State of Minnesota began to phase in an additional 7% funding cut for disability services. This reduction magnifies the need for fundraising. For 2019, the volunteer Board of Directors that oversees Bear Creek Services set a goal to raise $500,000 to fully fund the support services for the more than 100 individuals who participate in the programs.

We are thankful to the many generous people who recognize the value our programs provide and are helping us reach our goal. If you would like to learn more about our purpose and contribution to the local community, please watch the video below. Let's make a difference together!
