Anne was awarded funding from several organizations, including the Jim Henson Foundation. In addition, this activity is made possible, in part, by funds provided by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) from an appropriation by the Minnesota legislature and also made possible by grants from Puppeteers of America Endowment Fund and VSA Minnesota.

Recently, Anne has received an Arts Tour Grant to take Nalah and the Pink Tiger on the road. And thanks to a Partners in Arts Participation grant to the Family Partnership, Anne was able to take her show, book, and art workshops to preschoolers in North Minneapolis and the Phillips Neighborhood. These activities were made possible, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment.
