Brandy Cattoor Children's Fund

Brandy Cattor was a former teacher and co-founder of The Religious Academy and a dear friend of Paul Grass as well as many others. Several years ago she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She had three children, all under the age of eight, and at the young age of 27 she returned to her Heavenly Father after a brief battle.

Since then, with support from her family, and permission from her mother, Sharon Pacheco, we have been selling her artwork with 100% of the proceeds going to Sharon to help her three young kids. In addition to her artwork, we invited artists from around the world to contribute to this fund.

For purchase, we take online credit card in our store. We also accept Venmo and checks. Venmo: Paul-Grass-1 who in turn pays Sharon. Checks should be written to Sharon Pacheco and mailed to The Religious Academy, 216 S. Grant Street, Denver CO 80209.  Email with the image(s) you would like to purchase. 

Isaiah Williams Fund


For years ,friend of The Religious Academy Nora Bender has volunteered her time and talents to help us succeed. She started as one of our first students and since then has been committed to helping our school's vision.

A few years ago her son, Aaron Williams, was tragically murdered, leaving his only son and Nora's grandson without a father. Nora's family comes from a strong African American family from Mississippi and we wanted to create an art show in honor of Aaron that was Civil Rights based. We have toured this show through the South several times, with proceeds going to this fund.

With permission from the family, we sell prints of donated artwork from our school and from Nora's Uncle and artist, Hamilton Byrd. 100% of the proceeds go to Isaiah in memory of his father Aaron.


We accept online credit card. For Venmo and check purchases email which image(s) you are interested in. For payment, checks can be written to Nora Bender and mailed to The Religious Academy at 216 S. Grant Street, Denver CO 80209. Venmo can be given to Paul-grass-1 and funds will be dispersed to Nora.
