DONATION TO THE EDUCATION TEAM

CGB regularly provides gifts of time and materials to students, schools and artists creating original work. Your contribution to this fund helps us support creators and to bring materials with us when we send teachers to schools.

CGB will match funds 100% from our book sales for all donations, large or small.

To contribute a custom amount, send your donation electronically to contemporarygeometricbeadwork@gmail.com and let us know it's for the Education Team, or mail a check to:

Education Team, Contemporary Geometric Beadwork
PO Box 15716, Washington, DC 20003

If you know of a classroom that would love a CGB visit, please email me at kate@katemckinnon.com and we will put them on the map for 2020.

As of January 1, 2020, all contributions are potentially tax-deductible in the US, as CGB is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. As such, our business records pertaining to funds received as donations will be available for audit or inspection under US law.

Kate McKinnon, USA and Skyler Kok, France
In his spare time, Skyler designs geometric patterns for DiMarca in France (Marca and Martin are his parents). Curious kids have such natural abilities to imagine colours, designs and shapes, and they have great instincts and questions,. We plan to visit hundreds of schools in the next five years.

Nico Williams, Montreal, Canada
This is a Warped Hexagon that Nico crafted at a CGB teaching session at MIT in January of 2019. We send a team to MIT every year to demonstrate how to use beadwork to think about math, physics, biology and self-organization. Nico is completing his Masters in fine art in Montreal now, and is a valued member of our team. Nico does fantastic gallery exhibitions and workshops for students, and will be featured in all of our upcoming books.
