We welcome individuals and businesses to help sponsor Ink Shop programs.  We acknowledge all sponsors on all of our publicity materials and on our website.  We encourage you to contact us about sponsoring any of the following programs:

Kahn Family Fellowship
Workshop Scholarships
School Programs for children K – 12
Puffin Foundation


Though we hope to have paid staff in the near future, we currently operate on all volunteer help.  The dedication of our volunteer staff help us to provide the services, programs, and professional studio we offer to the community.  Your help is always welcome. You can help with our gallery openings, cleaning the studio, mailings, and other office projects.  Contact us if you would like to volunteer. 


Each year the Ink Shop organizes special events, sends appeal letters, and requests  donations large and small throughout the year, in order to maintain the programs we offer the community.  Your support is absolutely critical to our success.  We rely on you to help us continue bringing first-rate exhibits, hands-on workshops, fellowships, internships, school programs, and special lectures and demonstrations.  Your continued help and support is deeply appreciated.

The Ink Shop receives funding from the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County through the Decentralization Program.
