There are no membership fees – everyone is a Friend of Thorp!
Friends of Thorp Nail Bar Fundraiser
Friends of Thorp has partnered with Thorp's esteemed speech pathologist, Ms. Davis, to bring you the Friends of Thorp Nail Bar Fundraiser. Through the end of January 2019, Ms. Davis will be donating proceeds from her sales to Friends of Thorp! She will also be at WinterFest for anyone interested in trying out the nail strips!
These nail strips are made from 100% nail polish, last longer than at-home nail polish applications, and do not give off any odors.
Perfect for kids, moms, grandmas, aunties, and your besties! Makes great stocking stuffers!
A heartfelt thanks to the supporters and sponsors of this year's WinterFest. Your generosity played a huge part in the success of this year's event.

Corporate matching gift programs allow corporations the opportunity to give back to the organizations that their employees are connected with. Each corporate matching gift program is different. Some programs match dollar for dollar, some double the gift, while others only match a certain percentage. To learn more about your company's matching gift program, please contact your Human Resources Department.
"DOLLARS for doers"
Also known as volunteer grants, these corporate giving programs convert your volunteer hours to actual dollars earned for a qualified non-profit organization, such as Friends of Thorp. If you volunteer at Thorp in any capacity, please contact your HR department to find out if your company participates in a "Dollars for Doers" volunteer grant program and designate Friends of Thorp as your non-profit organization.
