Can My Organization Apply for Give to Glass Funds?
Give to Glass is a fundraiser designed by and for the coalition members of Glass Impact, and does not have external grantmaking plans at this time.
Can My Organization Join Glass Impact?
Glass Impact is rapidly scaling in order to accommodate a sudden surge in membership interest. We are currently working together to form both a plan for growth and a membership application, and hope to share both in the coming weeks.
How Were the Member Organizations Chosen?
As organizations governed by the principle of inclusion, limiting the members of Glass Impact was an incredibly difficult decision. In order to narrow the field of worthy studios, we established three baseline principles. The member organizations must be registered 501c3 nonprofits, they must be glass focused, and they must be community-serving organizations dedicated to promoting diversity and accessibility in the field.
Can I Donate by Check?
Yes! Please send checks to the Princeton Area Community Foundation and be sure to note GIVE TO GLASS FUND in the memo line.
