Twice the Good (and why you should)!

This year do twice the good with one donation. Remember the Quilt Alliance this giving season with a donation of any amount and each dollar you give will be matched by a generous family foundation (up to $15,000 total in matching funds).
Please consider joining, renewing your membership or making a one-time gift by December 31. All donors are invited to honor someone special with all gifts over $25–see the details of our Thank You Thursday Tributes here.

Why you should
Donations of any amount advance our mission and allow us to continue the work that you value–documenting, preserving and sharing the rich stories of quilts and quiltmakers from all over our community. Please consider joining, renewing your membership or making a one-time gift by December 31.

1. Support the Alliance because you care deeply about the documentation and preservation of the rich history of quilts and their makers. Our members and donors provide significant support for our core projects like Q.S.O.S. and Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! and allow us to partner on projects like The Quilt Index. We document, record and share, even when you can’t be there! Over 100 Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! interviews were collected at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year!

5. You’ll receive our new membership lapel pin, and if you join or renew your membership (or make a donation of at least $25) by December 31 you’ll be automatically entered to win one of these great prizes provided by members of our stellar board of directors:

About quiltalliance

The Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our International quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation's diverse peoples and their communities. In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals: To promote the understanding of the quilt as an important grassroots art form. To make information about quilts available to a broad public. To educate the public about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost.
