Benefitting Crafting the Future
Proceeds from the sale of these pumpkins will benefit Crafting the Future, a National non-profit organization which partners with Youth Arts Organizations across the country to provide BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students with scholarships to renowned Craft schools and pre-college programs. Not only do they create pathways into the field for BIPOC artists, but they offer continued support once these artists have arrived. This means connecting people with professional opportunities like internships and commissions that will help establish their networks and plant roots in the community.
