#GivingTuesday is December 2

Thank you all for helping us achieve our end of year fundraising goals and further our mission to celebrate the power of children’s imaginations!

There is NO Monkey Business when it comes to Monkey business here at Barrel of Monkeys.  Although hilarious on the stage and in the classroom, we are serious about how the organization operates. Founded in 1997, we have a history of fiscal responsibility having ended almost every year with a surplus. It is a tribute to our founders, staff leaders, and phenomenal members of our board of directors that we have been able to manage a tight budget successfully over the years as well as consistently improve the quality of our programs and performances that make them some of the most sought after in the city.

Join us in making #GivingTuesday a great success! Click the link learn more and see an incredibly entertaining video in the process!  We’re always here to entertain and educate.

Barrel of Monkeys has been very lucky to receive the long-time support of many funders and individuals like you.  Whether it is making a financial donation, volunteering, or coming to “That’s Weird, Grandma” (and telling all your friends to come too), you are helping Barrel of Monkeys to save the world one kid’s story at a time!

Don’t have cash burning a hole in your pocket to donate but have time to give? Barrel of Monkeys offers volunteering opportunities throughout the year, mainly concentrated on our weekly performances of “That’s Weird, Grandma”, but including other fun activities as well. Check out the Volunteer Page for information.
