Sharon Janda Grant – Summary

Sharon Janda, an active Guild member, was involved in many study groups and a supporter of its activities and workshops. Sharon passed away on December 31, 2014. Through the generosity of her husband Richard, the Guild received a substantial donation. We wish to commemorate Sharon through our use of the Sharon Janda Memorial Fund.

There are three overall objectives for the use of this fund:

  1.   Honor Sharon Janda
  2.   Provide diverse educational opportunities that incorporate forward-looking,innovative giinnovative fiber art ideas including, for example, the use of new materials or state-of-the-art technique
  3.   Benefit the Guild.

The Guild will award a grant of up to $3000 annually to a study group, or other ad hoc group of Guild members, to organize an educational event for the benefit of at least 20 Guild members. We will be requesting proposals for 2018 in January 2018 which will be due in March 2018.   Grant applications will be available at the January meeting as well as online.
