The Artisan’s Asylum Grants Fund: Help us help others

The Artisan’s Asylum Grants Fund goes towards providing Asylum services to those in financial need and to occasional awesome projects.

The Asylum is a diverse community with one thing in common: Making. We want to extend that community to a wider and even more diverse group of people, and to enable dreams that are bigger than those that one person alone can realize. Help us help others, and please donate now.

If you’re a member of the Asylum community, you already know how great this place is and how it has changed lives already. We need to keep that dream alive and growing, and share it with more people. It’s also our hope that these grants can help improve local businesses, teach marketable skills, and otherwise make the world a better place. All funds will fall under the terms of the AG1 Grant Fund.

Aside from supporting the Asylum, we have a wide variety of opportunities for local organizations and companies to get involved by forming creative partnerships. Contact member-services [at] artisansasylum [dot] com with your ideas.
