For EVERY Dollar given to SAMA through September 30, 2016, our Challenge Donors will MATCH your donation up to the challenge goal total of $4,000!

WHERE will the funds go and WHAT will they be used for?

All donations made during this Matching Gift Challenge will go toward strengthening our General Operating Fund.  This is the money that we use to pay our day to day expenses, for example:

  • payroll for one full-time and one part-time employee
  • accountant, insurance and taxes
  • website, technical and communication services
  • Groutline and media content editing and publishing
  • SAMA merchandise and publications storage
  • conference, exhibition, special programs production

These are the essential expenses for maintaining SAMA as the world’s premiere nonprofit mosaic art organization and to continue to work effectively and efficiently as we build and develop programs that educate, inspire, and promote excellence in mosaic arts.

WHO does SAMA serve?

Our programs enhance the creative and professional lives of our members, conference attendees, exhibiting artists, instructors, vendors and public at large.  The impact that SAMA has made to the evolution of the contemporary mosaic art community for over 16 years, is immeasurable!  Help ensure the continued success of SAMA by making a donation TODAY that will DOUBLE it’s worth!
