Help fund the research!
This project has cost $750 to date in promotional materials, postage, paid assistance to design the study, and the jotform account. It has taken about 100+ unpaid hours. We anticipate it costing at least three times this amount in both time and money.
We plan to apply for grants, but lots of grants are "matching" grants, so if we have $1000, we get $1000. We would like to purchase a proper microphone and recorder for interviews, we will spend hundreds of hours editing these interviews. We will spend hundreds of hours promoting, mailing, and collating the data.
Any amount donated is helpful. $5, $10, $15, $20? We aren't a 501c-3 so your donation is not tax deductible. Your reward is the perpetuation of an endangered craft and the warm fuzzies that happen when you help keep the chair caning museum FREE for the education of the masses! (You will get a thank you card.)
Thanks for your support of the 2020 Chair Weaving Census.
