Become a VCPG Patron
Maybe you are not a ceramic artist, yet want to stay connected and support the reach and potential of the Ventura Potters' Guild. If that is the case, you may want to consider becoming a Patron of the Guild. In 2022 the Board created a “Future Growth” fund. Opportunities to expand the Gallery or create other “brick and mortar“ spaces that would benefit both the community-at-large and Guild members will take financial resources.
Grants often require matching funds. Rental agreements require deposits and insurance. Bringing dreams to reality requires that a nest egg is available. The Board believes we need to begin saving now so we have the financial resources available when the time comes.
If you are aligned with our Guild's Mission and want to be a vital part of the Guild's ongoing work to expand its offerings into an ever growing community, we invite you to be a Patron. A donation of any size will help build our capacity to expand our offerings.
