As the Column Bears organization matures, we will add to our benefactors and list of causes. Below you can find a short list of current supported endeavors.
Ongoing Fundraising Efforts
Spectrum Health Care is a non-profit provider in Columbia, Missouri. In addition to free HIV/STI testing with their Spectrum After Dark clinics, they also provide sliding-scale clinical services. They also provide free or reduced-cost birth control options to those who need them.
Past Fundraising Efforts
The Column Bears assisted in raising funds to assist in covering end of life expenses for former Bear At Large and longtime community member Gary Gould. This was done in light of the family needing assistance and inline with our mission of benefiting our community as needed.
