Clay without barriers
Each year, our community of Gardiner Friends comes together to support a special project through our Annual Friends Campaign. This year our goal is to run no-cost studio programs for school groups in six priority areas of the GTA.
With students back in classrooms, demand on the Gardiner’s studios for school visits has increased significantly. After two years of interruptions to its operations, the Gardiner relies more than ever on the revenue from studio programs to contribute to the re-establishment of pre-pandemic momentum. Your contributions through this campaign will allow us to maintain this effort while accommodating requests from schools in need of financial aid.
Please consider a gift at one of the following levels to help remove barriers for all students to access the enrichment provided by hands-on clay activities.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Gardiner’s mission to build community with clay.
