About

A Penland Love Fest!

Update: WE DID IT! Thank you to every single person who has donated so far and helped us reach the goal! We are overwhelmed by your love and support! Let's keep the magic going and see how well we can do before midnight! To our donation total, you can add a $20,000 challenge gift, because you helped us reach our goal in time! THANK YOU! 

We want you... to share with us today!

Goal: Stories Shared!

Goal: 350 gifts of any amount!

Penland Giving Day happens just once a year! We hope you will take the opportunity to SHARE YOUR STORIES  about how this special place has touched your life today on social media. Tell us about what you made, who you met, and what Penland means to you!

Make a gift today and help us reach our Giving Day goal of 350 donors in 24 hours. A gift of any size gets us one step closer!

Did you know? Penland School of Craft is a nonprofit organization. Since 1929, we have been helping people live creative lives. Penland belongs to all of us. Did you know that only 50% of our annual budget is funded by “earned” income from tuition, room and board, and Penland’s on-campus stores? The other 50% comes from contributions! Our immersive workshops are made possible by your donations! Small gifts keep the lights on, keep the craft education going, and help fund our extensive scholarship programs. Together, #WeMakePenland.

Updates
