We Are celebrating our second birthday! 


For your donation today, we are offering three new gifts:  

Attend the American Academy of Arts and Letters annual induction of new members and awards presentations, attended by our country's foremost artists, composers, and writers.  This May 22 daytime event in New York City includes admission to the ceremony, cocktail reception, and gallery opening of manuscripts and art of new members and awardees.  With your donation of $75.00, you will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to this high powered event!

And, for a $100.00 donation, you can receive a Britta Wheeler original hand-painted tote.  Britta has been a visual artist all of her life but rarely does she offer anything for sale.  This is your chance to support the CIFA (her brainchild) and own a piece by her. Several styles available, or make a request!

We now have tote bags! Made from 100% organic cotton in the USA.
For a $25.00 donation, you can receive a basic tote with the CIFA logo.

help us bring expansive education in the culture and craft of clothing to kids!
