We are very grateful to all of the individuals, foundations, organizations, and business who support our programs. In this spirit, we would like to share our thankful attention to the following:
Mayo Clinic is dedicated to giving back to the communities where its employees live and work. Mayo Clinic invests resources responsibly to produce the best outcomes for patient care, education, research, community enrichment and sustainability. Through its Office of Community Relations, Mayo Clinic partners with others to ensure that our community is a welcoming and healthy plan for all who live and visit here, and that our community attracts and sustains a diverse Mayo Clinic work force to deliver the best patient care. Sing Out Loud is honored to be the recipient of grant support from Mayo Clinic.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund. The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, Inc. (SEMAC) is one of eleven Regional Arts Councils designated by the State of Minnesota to distribute legislative funds to edify arts in our community. SEMAC seeks out and rewards creative efforts of high artistic integrity that stand out among similar efforts. believes that high quality art should be challenging and original, able to illuminate the human condition and serve the vital interests of the community. Rooted in basic human values, SEMAC believes that art should move the imagination and the heart, and enrich rather than merely entertain. It is within that context that we are honored and grateful to have received critical SEMAC support since 2007.

The Guild also presents an engaging Lunch and Learn educational program throughout the year.
