How We Fund the Leather History Preservation Foundation Scholarships
The creator of our logo, Tabitha Fischer, graciously donated her contest prize - a full three day weekend registration to Leather History Contest 2016 - to the Foundation to use for someone who wanted to attend the Conference, but could not for financial reasons.
We are incredibly grateful for both her talent, and her generosity!
This started our drive for scholarships for the event. Several other registered attendees followed suit. Thanks to their generous donations, we were able to provide a total of SIX scholarships for both Leather History Conference 2016. We were able to repeat that for Leather History Preservation Weekend 2017!
Our scholarships are funded through our sale of T-Shirts and other items through TeePublic, online and onsite auctions of donated items, and the generosity of individual donors.
We are already recieving funds and pledges to provide scholarship grants for our next event, Leather History Preservation Weekend (November 2 - 4, 2018). So far we have enough to cover SIX attendees! Thank you everyone for your generousity.
