On behalf of the board and staff, THANK YOU for supporting our kiln campaign, “Help Us Grow.” We are well underway to our goal of $25,0000, having already raised over $9,000 for much needed new kilns for our programs and outreach. While still early in the campaign, I am so thankful and encouraged by the outpouring of generosity. We are so grateful.


Did you know that our kilns are one of the critical ways we share our mission of providing extraordinary experiences every day?


Since last March:


• 222 women and girls met multiple times per month to assemble an glass mural providing a gathering space for women and girls to learn from each other, develop glass-making skills, and build new friendships and a sense of community.


• Over 1,627 families participated in our Art Activity Days with 150 scholarships (Golden Tickets) given to underserved populations.


• 158 high school students and 15 schools participated in Glass Experience Days and made projects for the annual Fox Valley High School Art Exhibition.


• 1489 individuals experienced glass studio programming through community based organizations such as Catalpa, Harbor House, and several retirement communities.


Thank you for considering philanthropic support! Your gift will make an impact for years to come.
