Supporting Critically Ill Infants +
Claritas Creative developed NICU Connect, a unique visual communication program that supports families caring for infants in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Starting life in a NICU can be difficult on a baby and their caregivers. NICU Connect was created to help ease the stress of having a baby in the NICU. Claritas Creative and the Claritas Creative Foundation have partnered to put this communication program directly in the hands of caregivers. Visit the beta NICU Connect site. Shop the fundraiser above to support this effort.
Supporting Arts in Education for individuals with Intellectual + Developmental Disabilities
Claritas Creative Foundation supports causes that aim to better support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and inclusion in arts education which includes dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design, and visual arts. We strive for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be fully included in arts programing and set them on a path to fully participate in their community throughout their lifetimes.
Claritas Creative Foundation proudly awarded our first annual Suzanne Turner Creative Empowerment Grant at the Celebrating Women Business Leaders Event in May 2017. The $3,000 grant was awarded to a young woman entrepreneur who is working to launch or grow her business, while giving back to the community. To date, the grant award has been presented to two women leading the way in business who are also supporting local philanthropy. Click to learn more.
