Community Service

I volunteer through ASID to further advance the organization and the communities in which we live.

To me it seems imperative that we give back.   Most of us have been blessed in many ways.   Whether with time, talent and/or money, giving back does more for us than it does for those on the other end of the gift.   To that end, B.J. Folkerts Art & Design is committed to supporting charitable organizations locally, regionally and beyond.

Among the organizations we support:

‘Horses for Joy’
This is a LaCrosse, WI based not-for-for profit organization.
Horses for Joy, Inc. sponsors individual participation in equine facilitated programs that promote personal growth and wellness through the horse/human relationship. For additional information please contact:

This Twin Cities based not-for-profit provides stress reduction and wellness services through the use of therapy rabbits. Visit their website at to learn more.

I donated an original painting to them for their fundraising efforts.  The original, and two sizes of limited edition prints, will be offered for sale.  Please consider supporting this worthy organization!
