CLAY Festival is proud to announce that it has received grants from the New Mexico Humanities Council, The Silver City Town & Country Garden Club, and Wells Fargo! These grants will fund a spectrum of programming during CLAY, including children's programming at 3 rural Grant County libraries, the Farm-to-Table Fundraiser, and the “CLAY Matters” Lecture Series.
The CLAY Festival depends on grants, donations, sponsorship, and fundraising to fulfill its mission of fostering growth of collaborative opportunities for small business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs working together to expand our rural cultural economy. These contributions go directly into funding the not-for-profit Silver City CLAY Festival and the unique programming and opportunities it offers to the community of Silver City and beyond.
Two unique fundraisers will take place during CLAY Festival, including the Farm-to-Table Fundraiser and the CLAY Poker Fundraiser. The Farm-to-Table Fundraiser will showcase locally grown food and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Volunteer Center's Food Bank and the Silver City Farmer's Market. The CLAY Poker Fundraiser is a favorite among locals and will feature donated prizes from local businesses awarded to the top ten players. The Grand Prize this year is a week-long stay at the Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona!
Consider lending your support to the CLAY Festival and its vision through a donation, sponsorship, or by attending one of the two signature fundraising events during CLAY Festival.
