25 Ways to Amplify Your Impact
When the COVID-19 shutdown began we asked our supporters for $200,000 to help cover April and May wages while apprentices and staff stay home, healthy, and connected. Thanks to our wonderful funders, we have closed the gap by $120,000. Now, you can Amplify Your Impact by helping us raise the remaining $80,000 to keep the creativity flowing while our apprentices safely socially distance and continue their creative work from home.
