Your Gift Matters

Your donation to the PCA furthers the mission of the organization to educate members and the public about glass paperweights. Giving makes a difference by advancing the art of making paperweights and recording and making information available that documents and explains the art, history, and beauty of glass paperweights and related objects.

Financial donations support the advancement of paperweight making techniques by supporting grants awarded to Registered PCA Artists on a year-round basis.

Grants also support individuals who are PCA members and organizations like museums who propose projects that further the mission of the PCA.

These projects create new research and information about glass paperweight making, create or help sponsor exhibits that will educate us all about glass paperweights, and assist with costs to digitize previous and new information about glass paperweights and glass paperweight making to make this knowledge more widely available across the world and perhaps spur on further research.
