Fundraising Events Hosted by CERF+ Supporters
Since CERF+'s inception over 25 years ago, artists working in craft disciplines, galleries, show producers, guilds, online marketplaces, and other supporters around the nation have orchestrated successful events designating CERF+ as a beneficiary of funds raised. Some occur only once while others have come to be annual events that are greeted with anticipation from expectant customers.
If you, your business or organization are interested in hosting an event, please contact CERF+ in advance. CERF+ staff can provide you with promotional materials, make suggestions for programs, and can even assist you in the planning. Whether organizing a fundraiser for CERF+ or hosting a conference, requests for promotional materials can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify the kind of event you are planning and its date, the type and quantity of promotional materials needed, as well as your contact and mailing information.
