Fundraisers

The Potter's Cottage, LLC is dedicated to giving back to our community! Invite supporters of your organization to join us for an art day and we will donate 20% of the proceeds to your organization. These events mostly take place on Sundays, but they may be booked at other times except for Saturdays. Group sales during your event must be over $200 in order for us to rebate $20% back to your organization. If sales are less than $200, then we give back 10%. Your understanding is appreciated. Here is a step-by-step guide to planning your event: 

STEP 1 

Call or email our event coordinator to set up a date and time for our fundraising event. Sundays from 11:00 to 4:00 is the optimal time. 
 

STEP 2

Begin advertising your event to your audience a month in advance. Ask our event coordinator for a flyer template for email or use on social media. This is a critical step for earning your money.  Let people know in advance that they can buy gift cards on line HERE on the day of your event and your group will get credit. Only gift certificates sold on the few dates surrounding your event that mention your organization will count toward your fundraiser. 

STEP 3

Plan for volunteers to bring refreshments. Allergy-friendly (peanut and tree nut free, gluten-free) options such as fruits and veggies are always appreciated. 

 

STEP 4

Your audience comes to The Potter's Cottage to create art. We will help them choose from painting pottery, glass fusing, or other available art activities and assist them with supplies and techniques.  

STEP 5

When people check out, they tell us the name of your  organization and The Potter's Cottage will write out a check for 20% of the pretax sale.

STEP 6

Celebrate your fundraising event! We will take a picture with our giant check and post it on social media. If your event was successful and enjoyable, schedule another event for next year!

STEP 7

Painted pottery and fused glass will be available for pickup approximately one week later after it has been fired.
