Art.i.fact is teaming up with the Santa Fe Community Foundation (SFCF) to create Clothes for a Cause, a program that will allow you to target your consignment dollars to areas of need in northern New Mexico. Since 1981, SFCF has been dedicated to supporting the development of healthy and prosperous communities in our region. The Foundation works toward achieving equitable access to opportunities for all people and communities within its five designated Areas of Impact (AOIs).
The areas we focus our grantmaking in include:
Art.i.fact believes in the important work SFCF does to enhance the quality of life in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico and that’s why we have decided to launch Clothes for a Cause, which will positively affect our communities.
You can direct 50% of the proceeds from your consignment sales to local causes you care about by choosing from one of SFCF’s AOIs (listed above). Every month, the proceeds from your consignment sales will be transferred to SCFC with a note on which AOI you wish your dollars to be applied. Of course, SFCF will provide you with a letter of acknowledgement for your tax records.
Alternatively, you may choose to earmark your dollars for one of the nonprofit organizations that have an agency endowment with SFCF. For a list, please visit www.santafecf.org/donors/agency-endowment-fund-list. We’ll send your consignment proceeds to SFCF, and they’ll take care of the rest.
It’s a win-win for everyone: Your clothing gets a second life with a new owner. You get more closet space. And an organization that is working to improve the lives of New Mexicans gets a needed boost.
