Fundraising and Community Service

Ceramic Cafe says “Yes!” to requests for donations, and we love to help with fundraising events for your Kansas City-area non-profit group. We believe in supporting the local community whenever possible, and have programs to support Kansas City Hospice House, Autism Awareness and Believe Big

Donations

Let us know about your event and we will donate a “Painting Party for Four.” We provide a mug with a certificate that says “Bring this mug back with three of your friends and you can all paint a mug for free.” Use the donation as a silent auction item or give it away as a door prize. The value is around $65.  We say YES to requests for donations, but we do not respond to emails or letters requesting them.  Instead, requesting organizations just need to come to Ceramic Café and ask for our “Painting Party” donation and we will gladly give you one.

School Auction Projects

We have GREAT ideas for school auction projects. Get an automatic 10 percent discount on any pottery or glass purchase for a school or non profit auction project.

Autism

Ceramic Cafe supports the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. We have puzzle shaped coasters and ornaments that can be painted for $12 each (with no additional studio fee). All money from the sale of the puzzle-shaped items is given to the Thompson Center. If you or your group cares about autism research and services, come enjoy some creative time while helping a cause you care about. The coasters and ornaments are yours to keep after firing.

Kansas City Hospice House

Family members and friends of individuals staying at Kansas City Hospice House often spend hours sitting around with a cup of coffee in their hands. Coffee is served there in hand painted ceramic mugs. Frequently the visitors want to keep a mug that they have used. So Hospice House always needs more coffee mugs. You can paint a coffee mug for them to use for just $15. Volunteers pick up the mugs and deliver them to Hospice House.

Believe Big

Believe Big is a national program to support cancer treatment patients. “Paint your own pottery’ studios all across the country are part of this program benefiting their local communities  “Believe Big is bridging the gap between conventional and complementary medicine for fighting cancer. Believe Big provides patients with hope, help, and healing.” Their motto is Face it, Fight it, Overcome it.  Come paint a mug at Ceramic Cafe, add just one word “believe” on the mug and the mug will be given to a patient at a local cancer treatment center. The cost is $15 per mug..
