Springwater Still Needs Your Help

This email just went out from Springwater's Board of Directors.

Dear Friends of Springwater,

Your dedicated support of Springwater has kept us going throughout the last 8 months of crisis. We still need your help to keep building Springwater back from the ground up.

During the "Big Push," our donors accomplished a lot for Springwater.

  • We held two successful sessions of classes (Winter and Spring) and planned for the current Summer session.
  • We retired our debt and re-established good relationships with vendors.
  • We retained and refurbished our classroom space and store.
  • We hired two professional, full-time staffers to handle education and management.
  • We restocked and reopened our supply store.

There is no way to describe how grateful and humbled we are as the board and staff to know that the community support for Springwater is so deep and so generous. Each of you who donated and fulfilled your pledge has our deepest gratitude.

The community support placed in sharp relief the changes that needed to be made at Springwater to make it a financially viable and successful nonprofit in the future. We are making those changes now.

  • We are working closely with our teachers to plan and execute classes in all of the fiber art fields.
  • We have standardized our class pricing structure to make it more equitable for all students.
  • We are re-organizing a system to more efficiently take special orders for equipment and tools not easily accessible in the region.
  • We are aggressively seeking out additional grants to support our educational mission.
  • We are expanding the privileges of membership in Springwater by bringing in more events and additional perks.
  • We are improving our website and online outreach.
  • We are planning more ways to get students, customers, teachers and supporters involved and invested in Springwater.

To keep Springwater moving forward, we still need your financial support. As a board, we planned to hold a fall fund drive as an annual campaign. But the current economic climate and end of our fiscal year have made it imperative to ask for donations now.

If you can give -- in whatever amount -- it will keep the momentum of growth and change going at Springwater. Our new dynamic board and brand new staff are excited to continue making positive changes, and we think you'll like what you see.

Please give. Springwater is committed to doing whatever we can to provide the best possible educational experience and materials for our students and customers. We want to hear your feedback about how we are doing, and we are working on improving our communication to you.

Thank you again for your continued, loyal support of Springwater.

Ann Liddle
President, Springwater Board of Directors
