2009 FUND RAISING CAMPAIGN REPORT
Use of the Fund's donations:
To pay one-year's rent for storage/preperation space
Replace electric wiring
Cutting sheet for work table
As readers of KIWA Topics know, we found last year a spacious place to store the KIWA Collection, and to mount the prints for our exhibitions. It is the second floor of a Christian church in Kyoto. The building, originally the private home and shop of a sweet potato family, was well made and will continue to stand for many more years. The church got the property just after the war and owns both the house and the land, very unusual for this part of Kyoto.
Here is a report on how donations from the first Campaign have been used to complete the list above. The second floor ceiling needed replacing, and the electric wiring had to be renewed. The ceiling was replaced to keep dust from the underroof off the prints, and to reduce the heat in summer. Proper storage racks have been built to a design drawn by KIWA's president. An air conditioner to keep the summer temperatures within a tolerable range for paper art works has just been purchased in August, 2010. This completes most of the Campaign One's promises.
From now, Campaign 2 donations will be used for the #6 KIWA Exhibition in March, 2011. Members' fees and donations will pay for the poster, flyer, tickets and the catalog.
Below is the list of donors so far. We hope we can add your name in the near future.
