Give Great Falls 2021

C.A.N. is again participating in the community online giving platform: Give Great Falls!

This is a wonderful way for our community to come together and support the many nonprofits that create positive change in our world. Joining this community event gives C.A.N. both an opportunity to raise funds, and more importantly, to raise awareness.

The ASL community is a valuable component of society, and access is imperative for us to be a positive influence in our world. As we join the other nonprofits in this platform, they can see that the ASL community is here and is worth including. We also hope that it will plant seeds for increasing access and inclusion for the future.

So, here we are…. on this platform…. and we could use your help. What can you do??

Thank you for supporting our community!!

From the founding of C.A.N. in 2019, figuring out the details of nonprofit management, navigating the effects of the pandemic, remodeling the CAN Center, and connecting with amazing people through it all … the last two years have been quite a ride! And we are so thankful for each of you!! Every member of our community has a significant role and an impact on the progress of C.A.N. We could not have made it this far without you! And together we will realize a community that embraces and celebrates American Sign Language with access and inclusion for all. Thank you!

Together we CAN!
