Make a contribution before the end of the year to magnify your benefits for all! Your end-of-year contribution adds to our matching appeal goal. And you, the donor, benefit twice!
How? Each contribution to our Fund for the Future is matched by the generous challenge grant, giving Baltimore Clayworks important resources to launch our rebuilding and growth. PLUS … donors of $500 or more may receive tax credits (in addition to charitable deductions) to lower your tax payments.
How it Works:
Step #1 — Write a check or make a credit card donation to Baltimore Clayworks. (See links below to make it easy for you.)
Step #2 — Fill out a CITC Waiver Form (see the links below) and return it to Baltimore Clayworks immediately. We will sign the form and return a copy to you in January for your tax return preparation.
Step #3 — When you pay your taxes, claim a charitable deduction, as you always have done, and Claim a Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) on your Maryland Tax Form.
The amount of the tax credit you can claim is equal to 50% of your contribution to Clayworks!
Reminder — You must complete and return the CITC waiver form (see link below) to Baltimore Clayworks immediately, Mail it with your check, or send it after making your contribution via credit card. THANK YOU

The Board of Trustees of Baltimore Clayworks, Inc. is pleased to announce the selection of Nicole Fall to assume the responsibilities of Interim Executive Director.
Nicole Fall is an artist-educator who has been an arts administrator, exhibiting artist and educator. She was a founding teacher of George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, a high school for the arts, Associate Professor and Coordinator for Visual, Performing, and Communication Arts at Baltimore City Community College, an adjunct professor at MICA, and a teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools.
A sculptor who works in clay, welded steel, and cast bronze, Nicole is a two-time recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award. She also worked for Baltimore Clayworks in the early 2000s as Community Arts Programs Director.
Nicole looks forward to working with the Baltimore Clayworks community as it navigates this exciting and transitional period.
“In my experience as a teacher I have had the honor of guiding and witnessing the transformation that happens when a student picks up a lump of clay and makes a cup, or a cat, or a creature from the deep; their eyes light up with possibility,” she says. “I would like to continue the work, in my role as interim executive director of Baltimore Clayworks, of bringing clay to community inspiring hope and possibility.“
