The Costume Industry Coalition (CIC) continues its emergency relief campaign, as we look towards reaching our overall fundraising goal of $4.5 million.
The CIC's fiscal sponsor is the Artisans Guild of America (AGA), a non-profit dedicated to perpetuating the American tradition of the artisan workroom. All donations will be tax-deductible through the AGA, with the majority of the CIC Relief Fund being used to cover rent, employee health insurance, and utilities. Funds will then be distributed to Members in need through an independent application process. Relief funds will enable Members to keep their doors open until production resumes, covering rent, employee health insurance, utilities, and liability insurance.
The entertainment industry will eventually reopen. The Costume Industry Coalition wants to still be around when it does!
