The Festival of Trees – A Celebration of giving is a special event to provide support to individuals with disabilities in Olmsted County, raise awareness about Hiawatha Homes, and engage the community in celebrating the holiday season.
Through this fundraiser, Hiawatha Homes Foundation has raised over $4 million to benefit individuals with disabilities in our community. This is made possible through the support of Underwriters, Designers, and dedicated volunteers who work year-round to organize this community fundraising event.
A Note from Hiawatha Homes Foundation
This spring is unlike any other spring we’ve experienced at Hiawatha Homes. Traditionally, this is the time of the year when our Festival of Trees planning committee is hard at work kicking off the planning for the upcoming event. Our team is hard at work; however, it looks a bit different this year. We are finding ourselves with many additional questions as we prepare to celebrate the 35th anniversary of our most favorite time of the year.
We will be sure to update this page as our planning unfolds. One thing is certain, we are hopeful that we will be together celebrating in just a few short months.
With all of the uncertainty and out of respect for each of our supporters, we will not be sending official requests until a later date. If you would like to support Hiawatha Homes and the Festival of Trees regardless of how everything unfolds, we invite you to complete your Underwriter/Tree Designer agreements by clicking the links. We may not have the answers to all of our questions, but we do know that we are a community and we are in this together!
Please feel free to reach out to a member of the Foundation staff with questions at (507) 289-8683. Stay safe, stay healthy.
