Potters for Peace relies on individual donations and fundraising to continue our work. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization so you will be sent a tax receipt for your donation.

How to Donate

There are several ways to donate to PFP:

Individual Donations

Donations from individuals are the backbone of our funding and knowing that others believe in PFP’s work sustains us along the way. Whatever your giving capacity, you can help. Small donations make a big difference! Potters for Peace is featured in the book Give a Little by Wendy Smith (Hyperion Books), a book that shows how effective individual donations are in bringing about positive change.

One cannot be a “card carrying member” of PFP as we don’t have that kind of membership policy but when you donate you will be placed on the mailing list for PFP newsletters.

Group Donations

An ideal way for a group to contribute to PFP is through an annual benefit pottery sale or other promotional event. We can help with informative media and wholesale Nicaraguan pottery.

Another option is to hold a sale of Nica pottery, with the money raised going to Potters for Peace. If you purchase pottery for this purpose from Peace by Piece Fair Trade, they will give you a discount. Contact Brian Benn at peacefairtrade@gmail.com.

Another option is for pottery cooperatives or guilds to develop an on-going relationship with a Central American pottery cooperative. This relationship could include sponsoring travel and interchanges to each other’s workshops, fundraising for infrastructure improvements, or funding children’s schooling and health care. PFP will be happy to work with you on this.
