The nonprofit LC Valley Artisans group is accepting donations to support Lewiston-Clarkston Valley artists.
The group was formed to raise money to support creative people in the valley. Artists can use the funding to attend classes or retreats, or to buy time off from day jobs in favor of studio time. In 2019, $200 was awarded to artist Jaymee Laws, of Lewiston, who used the grant to pay for child care in order to complete a project for the YWCA of Lewiston and Clarkston women's shelter. The group's fundraising efforts were put on hold by the pandemic in 2020.
Donations are being accepted online at lcvartisans.com or by check mailed to P.O. Box 1125, Lewiston, ID 83501. All donations are tax deductible. More information is available online or by emailing secretary Terry Blankenship at email@example.com. The group also is seeking board members and volunteers.
