Help POT Get Through The Next 6 Months

Help POT Get Through The Next 6 Months!

POT is the first full service community pottery studio that is owned, operated by, and intended for people of color.  Established in 2017, our mission is to create pleasure, community, and new career paths for POC in pottery. We offer classes, memberships, career training, sliding scale pricing, community programming, and even free workshops for our communities. 

This pandemic has been really hard on small business brick & mortars, and given that we have two, we are double feeling it. We cannot afford the staffing it takes two run two studios while operating at 20% capacity. We've tried our best to stay afloat on our own, but we've exhausted all we have and cannot sustain like this through extended closures.  So we're asking for help to get us through the next 6 months.

During this time we will continue to work hard within the parameters of what is COVID-compliant and safest for our staff and community.  All the money we make will go towards JOBS; both payroll and hiring the hands we need. 

Our goal is to keep POT alive so that we can keep our studios and team and continue to serve our communities.

IF YOU WANT YOUR DONATION TO BE TAX DEDUCTIBLE, DONATE THROUGH OUR WEBSITE DIRECTLY FOR A TAX DEDUCTIBLE RECEIPT  (Donations made here through GoFundMe are not tax deductible)

If you have lost employment or are hard up on money, please don't feel pressure to donate. You are who we are here to serve. Simply sharing and spreading word is help enough and we really appreciate it.

This ask is for those who can afford it, organizations who want to see us survive, and for the larger pottery community. 

The money will go directly to covering the following for 6 months:

- Rent (for TWO studios)

- Cleaning Service (COVID-compliant for TWO studios)

- Utilities (Includes water, power, trash, and wifi for TWO studios)

- Completing the build-out of POT Gardens. This includes outdoor workspace, wedging tables, and a clay recycling station.

Thank you so much for being a supporter of the arts and POT's mission!
