Funds raised: $1,210
As artists continue to show their undeniable solidarity for the Black community with each fundraising event, I am looking for ways to build Metalsmiths for Change to further support the Black community. Your contribution towards the Metalsmiths for Change Fund will make a huge impact on how Metalsmiths for Change can serve the community.
The Metalsmiths for Change Fund aims to:
- Help fund Metalsmiths for Change, LLC business operations, including filing to become a 501c3 non-profit. ($800 to file)
- Create equitable opportunities to empower Black artists.
- Feature and promote new and established Black artists.
- Award small ($100-$500) grants to Black metalsmiths/jewelers.
- Provide gemstones for artists to be used during certain fundraising events.
- Be transparent by routinely disclosing fundraised amounts.
