Clay & Glass Arts Foundation
In May 2001, ACGA founded the Clay and Glass Arts Foundation (CGAF), in order to provide an independent, non-profit clay & glass organization that could take on roles ACGA wasn't able to perform. With 501(c)(3) status, CGAF can do all these things:
Apply for grants to fund a variety of projects such as clay or glass art education in local schools and communities.
CGAF-sponsored workshops, lectures and/or demos are open to the general public and are advertised in the ACGA newsletter as well as by the event venue.
CGAF Mission Statement
The Clay and Glass Arts Foundation seeks to foster participation in and appreciation of the ceramics and glass arts.
CGAF funds workshops and lecture/demos for artists and community members, as well as funding glass and ceramics projects in schools and in the community at large.
CGAF is interested in programs, workshops and art projects that encourage participation by under-represented or under-served populations within our greater community.
CGAF is supported by grants and donations. Donations to CGAF are tax deductible as allowed by law and may be sent to:
