Everything is completely cost-free for our participants. We fund our program completely with grants, donations, and fundraisers such as meat raffles and our end-of-year raffle after the pageant. 100% of all the money raised goes directly back into our program. We are completely run by volunteers and have no paid staff.
You can join our program as a participant or volunteer at ANY time of the year. For pageant participation though, the deadline to enter is March 1st.
Each month, Crowning Achievements hosts a special fun event for our participants, their families/caregivers and our volunteers. Events range from a trip to the zoo, a party, bowling, a visit to the museum or local fair, plays, parades, movies, and more. Some places we have visited are Fawn-Doe-Rosa, the St. Croix County Fair, The Gibbs Farm Museum, Como Zoo and so many other fun places!
In the fall we even host a fun pageant for those that wish to participate. It is completely optional and everyone wins! Following this we hold our largest fundraiser of the year. It is a raffle of numerous items from local businesses and individuals, as well as national corporations who have been generous enough to donate items to help us raise funds.
