Donor Spotlight: Sanderson Lincoln September 12, 2017 Thank you for supporting MIM and our community Sanderson Lincoln has supported MIM since the year it opened in 2010 by sponsoring the MIM Music Theater’s seasonal concert series, hosting Lincoln Driven to Give events to raise funds contributing to the museum’s general operations, and supporting the MIMkids Junior Museum Guide program. Sanderson Lincoln was founded upon the strong principle of supporting the community and continues to practice that today. “Community is what keeps us going, and MIM really speaks to that with all it gives to the community and the world,” says Patrick Heigl, brand manager at Sanderson Lincoln and a MIM advisory board member. “It covers so many facets of life and celebrates the ingenuity of cultures and people, which really connects us all.” Sanderson Lincoln’s generous support of the MIM Music Theater’s seasonal concert series helps bring more talented artists from around the world to Arizona, and the quantity of shows continues to grow each year. Scholarships from the company have made the Junior Museum Guide program possible for many students from grades six to twelve. The program gives youth the opportunity to learn about cultures from around the world and participate in music making while building public-speaking and leadership skills, and MIM is thankful to share this opportunity with more young community members. The generosity of Sanderson Lincoln reflects the company’s desire to make a positive impact in the community, and we deeply value this enduring partnership. “What occurs within MIM’s walls is so important. It’s been a pleasure to see what’s happened over the years, and it’s important for Sanderson Lincoln to support even further development of the museum,” says Heigl.
