Dear Wonderful Friends,


Did you know that in just one year, 1,627 families have participated in our monthly art activity days? Or that 158 Fox Cities Area based students and 15 high schools made and presented glass artwork in our annual exhibition? And 589 community members participated in-house enrichment projects that included glass studio projects? Or that we have given away 150 Golden Ticket Scholarships so children can make a special glass activity? The common denominator in all these extraordinary glass experiences is our kilns. We activate our mission through our beloved kilns to enrich the lives of our community and share the magic of glass.


Today, I am writing with a special ask for your help to support YOUR museum with a time-sensitive project. Two of our glass kilns are so well-loved that they urgently need to be replaced.


We’re embarking on a kiln campaign, “Help us Grow” and we’d love your support! Will you please consider joining us in this glassful endeavor, by making a donation at a level meaningful to you? Help us make glass magic with kids and adults alike.


Your donation contributes to one-of-a-kind glass experiences for more than 20,000 visitors each year, and free admission makes participation accessible to all! While the visitor number is impressive, what’s most powerful is the experience you make possible for each individual who walks through our doors.


We offer our deepest thanks for your continued support and your consideration of this extra special request. Your investment will make an impact for years to come!


Thank you so much for considering our kind request and helping us grow!


With gratitude,

Amy G. Moorefield

Executive Director


**Did you know that if you contribute $100 or more, you’ll receive a special handmade glass flower sun catcher as our special gift to you.
