an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Thank you to those in the community who have asked for a way to help support beadwork artists around the world who are struggling during the pandemic. Here is a direct donation link to our newly created Stipend Fund.
In addition to care packages of beads from the donation from the John Bead Corporation, CGB is distributing financial stipends directly to artists. We have always done this on team, but while we are waiting to publish the new books, I don’t have the funding available to help enough right now and the need is great.
Contemporary Geometric Beadwork is a part of the UnLAB, the non-profit science team I formed with my partner, Charles Chase.
In 2019, we received official 501(c)(3) non-profit status with the IRS, and now seems a good time to mention that as any contributions to this fund are tax-deductible in the US (if your tax circumstances allow for the deduction).
Please feel free to share or forward our link, and again, thank you to all of you who have asked to help me do this; you are so kind. Like any US non-profit, our records of spending and giving will be publicly available at the end of each year.
100% of all funds received from this link will go directly to creators.
