The Ensemble was awarded the Caerus Foundation Growth Grant of $500,000 with the challenge to raise an additional $500,000 in three years. Reaching this funding goal, Caerus Foundation will grant the final $500,000 for $1.5 million!

Thank You City of Chicago for setting the Chicago Picasso Daley Plaza sculpture stage for Dame Libby Komaiko, Founder of Ensemble Espanol Spanish Dance Theater.
“Four Star Branding truly takes the time to understand the client’s mission and passion starting at the core of your company’s foundation and its stakeholders needs. Our Raised in Chicago, Ready for the World match grant campaign of $1.5 million (with a challenge to raise $500K) was not only reached two months ahead of schedule but exceeded the fundraising goal while raising our company’s profile and outreach to new funders, investors and audiences. Ole!”
