A brighter future begins with you!

Become a member of GlassRoots Gaffers Circle of Monthly Donors and join our community of committed donors. 


Join fellow donors in making contributions to GlassRoots each month and see the difference you will make:

  • $5 each month = a pair of didymium glasses, because safety matters here
  • $10 each month = one more student able to participate in an intensive 10-week residency
  • $25 each month = 100 hours of gas for a flameworking torch used by a high school student or budding craft entrepreneur
  • $50 each month = 15 sheets of glass used in fused and mosaic glassmaking, and public art installations
  • $100 each month = 1000 lbs. of batch, the glass used in the only youth-accessible hot shop in our area
  • $10 each month = one more student able to participate in an intensive 10-week residency
  • $1000 each month = opportunities for several high school students to participate in our year long youth entrepreneurship program 

Thanks to the support of monthly donors, GlassRoots can rely on a consistent and steady stream of income to provide our quality programming, which engages youth and young-adults and creates new visions for their futures.


  • It’s cost effective. Automatic donations are processed more efficiently and monthly donors receive fewer mailings every year.
  • It’s reliable. The program provides a consistent source of funding.
  • It makes a difference. We can offer programs knowing that funding is in place.
  • It’s easy and automatic. You choose the dollar amount.
  • It’s flexible and secure. You can increase, decrease, pause or stop your donation at any time.
  • It’s convenient. You will receive one, consolidated tax receipt for your donations each January.
  • It’s rewarding. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping Newark area youth and young adults 365 days a year.
