    What is Give to Glass?

    Covid-19 has been particularly tough on artists, including the glass-blowing community. Many of these studios will need our support to survive.

    Give to Glass is a fundraising campaign created by and for Glass Impact, a nationwide coalition of nonprofit, community-focused glass organizations who are dedicated to equal access and uplifting diverse voices and ideas through glass.

    The Princeton Area Community Foundation has partnered with ‘Give to Glass’ to collect donations. Donations should be made out to the Princeton Area Community Foundations with ‘Glass Impact’ in the memo line. Much more information on the group can be found at givetoglass.org

    Glass Impact was first imagined by a small team of nonprofit studio administrators at a Glass Art Society conference, who connected but once a year at the Community Outreach panel. They realized that their similar missions, struggles, and successes made them uniquely suited to support one another and to create systemic change within the glass community.

    After COVID-19 effectively shuttered the organizations of Glass Impact, it was clear that the focus must shift to a joint fundraising effort designed to keep any one of the studios from closing. The Give to Glass campaign was soon launched.

    As a group we represent all of the leading organizations working to bring the art of glassmaking into communities of color, to veterans, and to those who would normally not have access to this medium for expression because of its cost-prohibitive nature.

    By supporting Glass Impact through the Give to Glass Campaign, you are making a statement:

    A diverse and accessible glass community is the best way that we can move the industry forward, and we cannot afford to lose those who are fighting for inclusivity

    As a supporter of the glass-blowing community, we can see that they have been particularly hard hit by Covid-19. Many if these studios work with the youth in their communities to not only teach the skill, but also the teamwork and co-operation required to pursue this particularly demanding and beautiful art form.

    Its would be sad to see these groups fail. They are a true treasure.
