HGA's Fiber Trust Annual Giving Campaign
HGA members past and present have an extraordinary knowledge of the fiber arts. We are charged with the responsibility of preserving this knowledge and passing it on to future generations. Your support is needed now to enable HGA to meet the needs for scholarships and grants, educational programs, to preserve traditions and techniques, and to inspire present and future fiber artists.
Only 7% of HGA's income is contributed revenue.
93% of HGA's revenue is earned from ads in Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot magazine, Convergence® registrations, eShop sales and memberships; but this only covers a portion of our budget. To continue offering the many programs and educational opportunities our members enjoy, we rely on the generosity of our donors.
Your gift will enable HGA to continue to fund teams of university students to participate in the Design Challenge at each Convergence® conference; support educational programs such as Certificates of Excellence (COE) and Teaching and Learning through Correspondance (TLC); provide Student Assistantship Grants at Convergence®; and provide exhibition opportunities for fiber artists such as HGA's annual exhibit, Small Expressions.

Gifts of any size are welcome and as a special thank you to our Donors who gave $100 or more during 2015, they received priority registration for Convergence® 2016 Milwaukee. Along with the current 2016 FIber Trust members, Donors who give $100 during 2016 prior to the conference will receive preferred seating at the Convergence® Fashion Show.
HGA's success in meeting future goals will depend upon a significant number of gifts of $100 or more. Since HGA is a 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution of cash or property to HGA may have valuable tax benefits. Please consult your personal tax advisor with respect to your charitable deductions and any limitations of such deductions.
