Tracie Kahl's BFA Fundraiser
Organized by: Tracie Kahl
I have been a part-time student for seven years working on my BFA in ceramics at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I have been going part-time so I can work and help with problems (health and financial-wise) in my immediate family. I am so close to finishing my degree that I can taste it, but I've run into a problem. The funding for my last semester is $1,500 short of what I need to finish my degree. Normally I would try to find a solution on my own, but everything I've tried so far hasn't been viable. So now, I am turning to my friends, family, and strangers for donations. I don't expect to get money for nothing. So, I have a plan to give back to those who donate. For every five to ten dollar donation I will mail the donor a handmade ceramic necklace pendant. For every 15-25 dollar donation, the donor will receive a handmade Christmas tree ornament. For every 30-40 dollar donation I will mail the donor a ceramic mug. Finally, for every 50 dollar donation and above I will ship the donor a small ceramic basket. The donation brackets are set up this way to cover the costs of shipping and making, while allowing room for meeting my fundraising goal. All items will be made by me as a personal thank you for your help.
