As 2018 enters its final days, we are writing to ask once again for your support. Our mission is to be an inclusive community of makers and enthusiasts whose purpose is to promote awareness, inspire creativity, and foster appreciation for the heritage and artistry of basketry. This is what we strive to do as an organization and with your support we can continue to make it happen.
 
Memberships and earned revenue help us get our work done, but they don’t cover the total cost. It is contributions from generous supporters like you that help us cover the additional 15% of our budget. NBO’s fundraising goal for the 2018 Annual Appeal is $25,000. These additional funds are needed to enable us to run our programs. Please make your gift today.
 

Here are a few ways we will put your donation to work:
 
  • Publishing our flagship magazine. Every issue is designed to inspire you, educate you and introduce you to a wide range of talented basket makers.
  • Continuing our exhibition program including our first Members In Print exhibition. Jane Sauer, the juror, chose 40 artists to be in this inaugural exhibition, which will become a biennial exhibition.
  • Producing our Tenth Anniversary Conference. Plans are well underway. We have an exciting group of workshops featuring nationally renowned instructors.
  • Making sure NBO is an organization that is welcoming to everyone. Whether you are a maker, an enthusiast or perhaps both there is room in our group for you. We want to support your passion for the art and craft of basket making.
 
When you support NBO you become an important part of our team. The Board of Directors and staff work tirelessly to make NBO the vibrant organization it has become. Along with you, they contribute to our success. We are counting on you this year to help us with our work. Please send in your end-of-the year gift today.


PS - Your gift of any size is important!
