JOIN US in our Year End Giving Campaign!

In an effort to begin 2023 on a powerful note, we invite YOU to join us in our Year End Giving Campaign! The Year-End Giving Campaign is a digital fundraiser aimed at achieving one goal: to raise $25,000 solely for BEAR’s Annual Fund campaign. BEAR’s Annual Fund was created many years ago to cover any emergency needs the organization may have, as well as to help fill any program-specific financial gaps that may arise in the coming year. This fund has proved to be vital to BEAR’s success and its ability to continue to operate its core programs.

One of the most impactful ways that BEAR serves children is through Heart Gallery Houston. Heart Gallery Houston is a traveling photographic exhibit and community education and awareness initiative created to help find forever homes for children in foster care awaiting adoption. With the help of professional photographers who volunteer their time, these heartfelt canvas photos bring life to the faces of children that long to find a forever family and a life of stability and love. Since its launch in September of 2021, Heart Gallery Houston has photographed over 190 children, and 27 children featured in Heart Gallery Houston have been matched with their forever family.

To continue to offer impactful programs like Heart Galley Houston which thousands of children rely on each year, we need your dedicated support. A generous gift from you will help ensure the sustainability of these programs and maintain the highest level of quality in resources to serve as many children as possible in 2023.

Donation levels range from $50 to $2,500, but you are welcome to participate at any level with which you are comfortable.
