Community Giving

We love our community and want to support local organizations the best way that we can! Please note that our community giving efforts are focused on organizations that support children's organizations. Requests from organizations must be with-in a reasonable distance of our studio (we suggest that no further than 30 miles from our studio).  

Option 1
Host a fundraising event in our studio. 

How it works:
Arrange a date and a time with us to have a fundraising night in our studio.

  • Groups that collectively spend $500 or more will receive 10% of their collective purchase for their organization.
  • Groups that spend less than $500 will raise 5% for their organization. 
  • YES! You can buy gift certificates to use at a future date as well

Only groups who are a 501c3 non-profit may schedule this type of event
You must provide a copy of your 501c3 form before scheduling an event
Events are scheduled on certain days of the week.
All events must be planned out 30 days or more.
 Great for PTA events, church youth group fundraisers and sports teams!

Option 2

Create your own classroom auction piece

How it works:
  • A volunteer from your school stops in to pick out the pottery items.
  • You can purchase pottery items for 25% off the shelf marked price
  • We supply a kit of paints (no extra charge)
  • Take the items and a paint kit back to your school.
  • Have classrooms design and decorate your project.
  • A crafty parent can easily add names, and details to the project using our detail writer bottles.
  • Our staff can add names and details for an additional cost of $10-$25 per project
  • Firing and finishing takes 7-10 days (allow more time if you would like our staff to add customization to your project.
  • Put out on display at school for all to see, letting all parents know the items will be available at the upcoming school fundraiser.

Can we do a fused glass project? yes, stop in to discuss your project idea. We offer a 25% discount on glass projects

Help us help you!

  • come in and choose items at least 4-6 weeks prior to your event
  • Special orders can be made, but allow extra time for this
  • High demand for auction items is in the spring and the fall please plan accordingly (let us know you plan to take a kit so we can organize with other projects)
  • Plan to your use kit immediately, pick up can be made a day or two before you intend to use the materials and then returned immediately. 
  • We have loads of successful auction ideas check out our e, or stop in the studio and consult with one of our staff

Do schools make money at this?Yes. We have heard of pottery items selling at school auctions for $300 or more!

Option 3

Two $10 gift certificates
How it works:

We will donate two general gift certificates to most fundraising events.

  • Great idea for individual family and friend fundraisers, spaghetti dinners field trip funds, walk-a-thons, or prizes for fundraisers etc.
  • Bring in a poster/event info for your fundraiser or event. 
  • Your request must include, date, time and what the fundraiser is for.
  • We require your donation request to be picked up in person (we do not mail certificates)
  • Your request must include who/what the fundraiser benefits, the date, time and location of the event. 
  • The person who picks up gift certificates may not redeem them for product.
  • We favor groups and organizations where the primary funding is used for children's non-profit organizations.
