Bright Futures Chillicothe
Bright Futures mission is to utilize a framework that brings together businesses, human service agencies, faith-based organizations, and parent groups and partners them with schools in a way that helps them to quickly and efficiently meet students' basic needs.
How will funds received from the festival be used: Bright Futures Chillicothe is thrilled to be partnering with the Mid-America Music Festival! As one of the lucky charities benefiting from this event, we plan on using the funds received to help us as we help families in need, host back to school events, and ensure that our students have their basic needs met. This could be providing school supplies, food, clothing, bedding, or anything else that our students might need help with. When children's basic needs are met, they are able to focus in the classroom and prepare for life beyond school. As a community we want to invest in our youth so that they can one day invest back in the community who believed in their future.

Camp Rainbow exists to provide individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities a fun, safe and affordable summer camp experience. The campers come to camp for 3 days, during which they enjoy taking part in the many different activities we provide for them. Each day the campers have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities. Some of these activities include: Kickball, Water Games, Swimming, Crafts, Olympics Camp, Dances and Nightly Entertainment.
How will funds received from the festival be used: We will use the funds we receive from MAMF to help fund our camp as we have expanded to 3 sessions in recent years. These funds allow us to continue providing a fun, safe camping experience to individuals of all abilities.
Green Hills Animals Shelter
The Green Hills Animal Shelter is to provide a comprehensive community-based animal care, education and adoption program by providing a safe haven for abandoned, abused and neglected animals; educating the public on responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying and neutering animals; and encouraging and facilitating the adoption of available animals by appropriate and responsible community members.
How will funds received from the festival be used: The Green Hills Animal Shelter located in Trenton, Missouri plays a vital role in Trenton and several surrounding communities. We provide a safe home for cats and dogs that are homeless, abused and neglected. We continuously work to reunite our lost animals with their owners and shelter those in need until a suitable home is found. The charity money we receive from the MAMF is used to help ensure that we can do that. We are funded solely on donations to keep our shelter running and charity money from MAMF has played a huge role in helping us provide food, bedding and supplies to our animals. It has also helped with vet care, spaying/neutering procedures and the upkeep of our building. We are so blessed and thankful to work with MAMF!
Main Street Trenton
Main Street Trenton is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the historic charm of Downtown Trenton. The vision of Main Street Trenton aspires to strengthen the thriving and vibrant downtown core through social, economic, and cultural revitalization.
