The Haverford Guild of Craftsmen (HGC), founded in 2009, is a proud local chapter of The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen (PGC). PGC started in the 1940s and is one of the few state guilds remaining today from Eleanor Roosevelt’s Initiative. She saw the arts were struggling during World War II, due to factory demand for the war effort. In an attempt to aid artists and craftsmen to continue their work, Eleanor created the Craftsmen Guild Initiative. That legacy continues through the HGC, with over 100 members who create fine art and craft in a myriad of mediums, including glass, metal, wood, clay, jewelry, painting and more. Our mission is “recognizing that the making of craft enriches all” and our goal is to encourage and promote the practice of fine craft and art.

We at the Haverford Guild of Craftsmen value our community and do what we can to give back. A few ways we show our support for our local community is:

  • Donating art supplies to The Torrey House in Media
  • Donating to the Kelly Music and Art fund in Havertown
  • Offering a mentorship program for emerging artists
  • Offering scholarship grants for local artists
  • Offering free art programs to schools in need

Most years we host two or more juried shows to promote the arts in our community and to give local artists the opportunity to sell their work. Due to skyrocketing costs in advertising and venue rentals, holding our annual shows has become challenging. We are struggling to put on our show while keeping booth fees affordable for artists and are asking for your support. Our holiday show is scheduled for November 24, 2019 at the CREC in Haverford. With your tax-deductible donation, we will be able to finance our show and continue to let the arts thrive and enrich our community.

Please take a look at the different sponsorship levels and consider which level is right for your business. You will get the benefits of reaching new customers through different advertising mediums, based on your sponsorship level, to possibly include the Philadelphia Inquirer, News of Delaware County, email blast, our website, social media, the Program Book and more.

We understand that as a business you get many donation requests, and we genuinely thank you for your time and consideration.
