The new year will be here before you realize it and now is a great time to give to DIY Studio. We are excited to announce a couple of ways that make donations easy and beneficial.
1. We’ve are now a Participating Cultural Nonprofit and are listed in Oregon Cultural Trust’s website. The Oregon Cultural Trust partners with over 1,300 cultural nonprofits throughout Oregon. A gift to DIY Studio followed by a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust allows a donor to claim a tax credit. The tax deductible portion of memberships to many Oregon cultural organizations also qualifies toward the matching gift. That’s great news for both your tax credits and for our organization.
2. We are also working with United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley to allow you to direct gifts through your donor designation option at work. So if you are a part of a charitable contribution program at work, please choose DIY Studio!
We try our best to be good stewards of your donations. We are fueled 100% by volunteers who are passionate about diverting waste, making community connections, and arts education. We like doing a lot with a little and saving money where we can. Did you know DIY Studio doesn’t even pay for a phone? Yep, it’s true. Finding creative and affordable ways to do business is a necessity and we are proud to be frugal. However some costs are unavoidable and that’s when donors like yourself help us keep doing what we love the most. Because of generous donations we are able to see the smiles of children who take our classes and enjoy teaching them how to think like artists. We continue encouraging adults to become playful again as well as supporting and promoting local artists. By choosing DIY Studio, you are choosing to invest in your community, in the arts, and the environment. And for that, we are so very thankful!
