Do you appreciate the work of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen? Enjoy this blog? Been to a Guild show recently? Purchased something in the Guild Store? Taken a class or workshop? All of these things are organized by the Guild – and the Guild does not exist without your support.
Today is the day to be EXTRAORDINARY and we are calling out to you! Please consider making a gift to the Guild TODAY during the Extraordinary Give. For 24-hours only, when you donate online to the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen your gift will be stretched by a $250,000 stretch pool!
5 Reasons to give:
- Your gift goes toward enhancing your community through free creative events such as MakersFest.
- Your gift preserves the practice of craft-making for generations to come.
- Your gift promotes excellence in working craftspeople through exhibition, retail opportunities and professional development.
- Your gift helps the Guild purchase state-of-the-art equipment for classes and workshops at the Center of American Craft.
- Your support ensures that the Guild can continue to serve as a cultural leader in the arts, furthering our mission nationally as well as locally.
