Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide exceptional studio craft and fine art instruction for people of all ages in an inspiring residential setting.
Snow Farm is a nonprofit organization, a craft education center, and a community.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Snow Farm cancelled all programming between April and August,more than half our season. We are proud to have opened on August 5 for in-person workshops, but we still face a loss of earned income, at minimum, of $350,000.
In normal times, Snow Farm runs as a nimble, efficient, and resourceful organizaton. However, we do not have an endowment, investments, or deep cash reserves. Without earned income, Snow Farm faces a daunting and potentially devastating situation. We turn to those who understand that Snow Farm provides an ESSENTIAL service for health and well-being and ask for your most generous gifts at this critical time. Choose Annual Campaign for your gift so that your funds can be used where they are most needed.
