Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+)
The Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+) was founded on a single simple premise: people caring for one another during tough times. Building upon the grassroots gesture of passing the hat at craft shows for artists dealing with emergency situations, CERF+ created an ongoing pool of funds that are available to professional craft artists when they suffer career-threatening emergencies. In addition to the financial assistance, they help acquire donated goods and services for beneficiaries from individuals, organizations and businesses. CERF+ also provides resources for artists, including a new tool just announced: The Business Insurance Guidebook for Artists distills the key points of business property, liability, and disaster insurance into a pocket-sized booklet.
Thanks to the generosity of MAFA guilds and individuals interested in helping fiber artists with emergency needs, CERF+ now has a Fiber Arts fund. The Harmony Weavers Guild, which led the initiative to get this fund established with $2000 in donations, encourages MAFA guilds to continue donating to this fund, to ensure funds are available if a fiber artist has an emergency situation.
