Member donations have been invaluable in helping SGCI weather the COVID-19 pandemic. In recent months, donors and members have helped SGCI continue planning for Madison 2022; develop MakeReady, our new online platform for sharing digital resources; and plan upcoming online events. And there’s more to come! Please consider a Sustaining or Patron Membership to SGCI to assist the organization with operational costs during this ongoing pandemic. Your donation is tax-deductible.

SGCI is pleased to announce this temporary Tiered Membership, designed to address flexibility, inclusivity, and our new virtual connectedness. Tier One starts with a $5 SGCI membership rooted in MakeReady, our social platform. Like a makeready process of preparing a work for printing, this platform allows our members to share resources, ideas, projects, observations, and inquiries to broaden our discourse.

We are also introducing a mid-level, $35/$15 Tier Two, which will give members access to a new series of virtual events that we will be running in the coming months. Tier Three represents the traditional$75/$35 SGCI membership, with the ability to be an attendee at the conference participation be part of in-person events. Please see the chart below for more information on additional benefits in each Tier.

SGCI is committed to creating a non-profit that is equitable, accessible, and relevant to our printmaking community. After a one-year trial process, SGCI is hopeful that this tiered structure can become permanent for the organization. We invite you to join us in this experiment to create a new model for SGCI: Sign up today, spread the word, and download MakeReady to your phone!
