Donors

We are filled with gratitude for the bounty of generosity laid before us. You sustain Smirkus, enabling this little nonprofit with its Big Top, to serve a mission of dreams realized – of lives changed through the incredible magic of circus. Thank you.

To all of you who have given to Smirkus’ annual fund between April 2016 and April 2017 to bring this show down the road, please take a bow.
