It’s that time of year again! Our annual A Season for CERF+ fundraiser is about to begin. In the early years, we had over 60 galleries, businesses, and retailers sign up! Over the past ten years, however, the numbers have dropped to about 20 participants. Help us build up the A Season for CERF+ community again by signing up today!
How Does A Season for CERF+ Work?
Between September 1st and December 31st, galleries, retailers, artists, show producers, and others around the U.S. host their own events and, by doing so, join a national effort that supports the careers of craft artists before, during, and after devastating emergencies. You can participate in one or more of the following ways:
Change Maker – Give your buyers the option to round up their purchase to the next dollar with proceeds going to CERF+.
Raffle Rouser – Host a raffle, maybe in conjunction with something already in the works.
Proceed Player – Donate a portion of proceeds from a time period of your choosing between September + December.
Wild Card – Have an idea for something completely different? We love it already!
What’s in It for You?
In addition to supporting the artists who are so critical to your business, CERF+ promotes participants through our newsletter, social media, and on our website. We also make CERF+ promotional materials available for participants to have on hand during their events and can help with outreach to your community. We love our A Season for CERF+ participants and want everyone to know about their great efforts to raise funds to support our programs for artists!
We hope that you will join us for another exciting and successful A Season for CERF+. Act now to be included in the listing of A Season for CERF+ participants in our upcoming August newsletter Sign up today!
