Growing Our Future at 317

Updated Building Fund

As we vision into the future, we are under construction to expand ITEA!

ITEA raised over $26,000 towards our goal in 2022.

We are humbled to announce we have received a $10,000 anonymous donation for this campaign!

This generous gift brings us within 10% of our

2023 goal.

This campaign has been funded in part by a grant from the Anonymous Fund of the Greater Toledo Community Foundation.

ITEA appreciates this generous contribution and national acknowledgment of the healing work we teach and foster in our local community and beyond.

Our sincere thanks to the Greater Toledo Community Foundation

We are only $4,000 away from our new goal!

Our Home Sweet Home

Expanding our home in Louisville will deepen our roots right where we are and allow us to stay in the community we love. Construction started in mid-March and is right on track. We expect to open our new classroom, student lounge and expanded kitchen later this spring.

An extended doorway connects the new suite with our existing kitchen to create a student lounge area.

Demo of the interior walls in suite 3 only took a few hours.

All of the internal walls have been removed to open up the new classroom space. Fresh paint and new carpet are next.

By renovating our new suite, ITEA can offer more access to Classical Five-Element acupuncture for future generations.

Look how far we've come with your support:

  • 12 months of successful and dedicated fundraising, reaching 80% of our new goal in 2022
  • Celebrating our 25th Anniversary with over 70 graduates, staff, faculty, volunteers and community supporters coming together in support of our mission
  • Over $3,000 in matching donations for Colorado Gives Day

Past Present Future

In ancient cultures the world over, the turtle symbol carries generations on its back, and we too carry the legacy of ITEA and Sandy Lillie with us in good health and prosperity.

The crane gracefully lifts ITEA towards what is next - continuing to share this medicine with future generations to come.
