Snow Farm friends,
We miss you terribly and are heartbroken by so much of the pain and loss that fills our world right now. We are also deeply grateful for the beauty of the changing seasons, the resilience of artists, and the generosity of the Snow Farm community. We hope that all of you are healthy and are finding ways to stay creative and connected.
The following is a summary of the most current and important information related to the Snow Farm 2020 season in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- We are taking a month-by-month approach to cancelling workshops. At this time, all programming through the end of July has been cancelled. We are standing by for workshops in August, September, and October to determine if we can operate safely and in compliance with state and local guidelines. We will make our next set of decisions by or before June 19, 2020.
- Snow Farm is facing, at mimimum, a $350,000 loss of earned income. During normal times, we operate as a nimble, efficient, and resourceful nonprofit organization. The impact of the pandemic is a daunting and potentially devastating situation. We are asking everyone who values our work and understands that creativity is ESSENTIAL to health and well-being to give generously at this critical time.
- We have revised our cancellation policy to provide maximum flexibility. You can now cancel at any time up to the date a workshop begins, and we will waive all penalties. Only the $25 once-yearly registration fee is nonrefundable.
- If a workshop you are enrolled in is cancelled, you can choose one of the following options
- attend the workshop on a rescheduled date (when applicable - some but not all workshops are able to be rescheduled)
- switch to a different workshop later in the year
- donate what you have paid to Snow Farm as a tax-deductible gift (note: Snow Farm is facing a minimum of $350,000 in lost revenue and all gifts are critically important at this time)
- donate part of what you have paid to Snow Farm and receive part as a refund
- receive a full refund
