Renaissance Building Campaign Update

Florida Craftsmen's two most recent fundraisers, The Collector's Auction (February 22nd) and the current exhibition Gimme Shelter are two examples of studio artists - as members and as visiting national artists in the past - have been able to contribute financially to Florida Craftsmen's Capital Campaign. Their generous gifts of artwork translate into cash donations, as each piece is sold through auction or exhibition. Every contributing artist is bringing us closer to our financial goal as new owners of the Renaissance Building, closing this coming August. Each of these artists is recognized below for their thoughtful contribution of artwork toward this endeavor. (Results from the Gimme Shelter Exhibition will not appear as listings until the next newsletter!) We are deeply indebted to each of you for your talent and generosity.
As mentioned before, ownership of the Renaissance Building will put our statewide organization in a secure, cash-positive position as we move into the future. We can look forward to closing on the building with a very small mortgage and rental income from exisiting tenants.
Every single contribution will continue to profoundly impact the importance of this project. As an individual, your gift - at whatever level you can afford - is immeasurably appreciated. If you are an owner of a small business, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Florida Craftsmen. If you are a corporation operating in the state of Florida, you can easily pledge a gift as a tax incentive through the Community Contribution Tax Credit Program as our building is located within a designated "Enterprise Zone."
Please contact FC Executive Director Michele Tuegel or FC Development Assistant Jessica Cochran at (727) 821-7391 if you have questions regarding contributions of any kind.
