The National K12 Ceramic Exhibition Foundation, Inc. was formed officially in 2002 to ensure the long-term survivability of The National K12 Ceramic Exhibition. Mounting a national exhibit on an annual basis is an enormous undertaking costing thousands of dollars. We also give out hundreds of awards and scholarships, and put smiles on the faces of thousands of people who see the exhibition. We are a Federally recognized 501 c(3) organization. Our fund-raising goal is to find enough people and corporations who are committed enough to ceramic education to agree to pay a set annual dues fee forever.
Would you like to help us? We have 2 ways:
We accept Donations
to both The Foundation itself and designated donations to our
scholarship program. We encourage all who are inclined and able
to donate or join us permanently or donate as shown below via
PayPal or by check.
2. Our Annual Program creates wonderful results because of the generosity of our board of trustees, our Founders, Sponsors, Donors, and Friends. These people and groups have agreed to support us FOREVER.
Either way, it's tax deductible!!!
