ARTIST: Jake Pfeifer
Location: Levine Cancer Institute
Our unique fundraising model is designed to allow the public to choose not only the dollar amount of their donation, but also coordinate that choice to the individual elements of the art installation. This helps every donor feel personally connected to the creative process and more vested in the visual outcome of the art.
We funded the very first investigator-initiated sarcoma clinical trial at LCI which achieved global recognition. Since Levine Cancer Institute opened their doors in 2012, the Paula Takacs Foundation has become their largest non-profit research donor, gifting an average of $250,000 each year. By donating to each installation your dollars work hard to find cures.
A key portion of the Growing Hope Through Art program revolves around creating human connections. When groups or individuals whose voices — typically not considered mainstream — are given a platform to express themselves through art, we elevate empathy and improve our relationships across the community at large.
Our beneficiaries are a part of Atrium Health, an organization making a huge impact on amplifying hope. Atrium Health is a trusted destination for patients and partners from around the world with renowned care and ground breaking trials for sarcoma patients. The exhibit complements Atrium’s already impressive commitment to art as a way to augment care and elevate the healing environment.
