Clayworks recently received an additional allocation of Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC), which supports a new database that will improve efficiency, cut data entry time in half and will provide members with a faster and easier method of registering for a class or making a donation.

When you make a gift of $500 or more to Clayworks' CITC program by end of year, you will receive a 50% tax credit in addition to your regular charitable donation deduction for 2014!
