Donor & Sponsorship Opportunities

Your tax-deductible donation today helps the Alabama Craft Council continue bringing craft artists together to share their knowledge and passion keeping the rich craft traditions of Alabama alive, yet continually evolving. A sponsorship to the ACC is good for the arts and the community and it makes good business sense.
The Alabama Craft Council serves a wide and diverse community providing professional development opportunities for local and regional craft artists, educators, and students so they may pursue their talents and interests and share their creative works with the general public. These artists, educators and students fill galleries, teach classes, staff and participate in Alabama Clay Conferences, Alabama Clay Markets, and volunteer at many artistic endeavors across Alabama.
The Alabama Clay Conference brings in hundreds of visitors and guests from many local and surrounding cities, counties, and states. They come to support the arts and artists and enjoy the cultural activities that the Alabama Clay Conference provides that serve to improve their quality of life. Their economic impact to our local economy is substantial.
An important educational component of the conference is its impact on the individuals attending and the teachers who take back what they learn to their students, thus spreading the techniques and newly acquired knowledge to many other individuals. We also bring in the outside highly qualified presenters to broaden the perspectives of the attendees.
