Making a Contribution

These events involve a lot of donated time from a lot of individuals and donated materials and services from local companies, but it still cannot happen without financial contributions, too.

  • You can contribute right now, online, by clicking on this link:  Donate to CIDC through Network for Good
  • Please put “CIDC donation” in the Designation box.

 

Of course, we appreciate all donations, but to boost our efforts to cover expenses, we have three leadership donor levels and we are hoping that you will show your support by becoming a lead patron this year.

  • For a gift of $500 or more, we will prominently display your company banner you provide at the entrance to the park during the event, identify your patron status in the Crozet Gazette and event handbill and provide you with ten passes to the celebration in the park.
  • For a gift of $250, you will receive acknowledgment in the Crozet Gazette and event handbill and four passes to the celebration in the park.
  • And, for a gift of $100 you will receive two passes to the celebration in the park, published thanks in the Crozet Gazette and the event handbill.

July will be here before you know it.  Won’t you join us by contributing whatever you can afford?  If being a lead patron is too much this, please send whatever you can afford.   Your contribution is tax-deductible charitable donation. Thank you!

  1. You can mail a check payable to: Downtown Crozet Association and send it to: DCA, P.O. Box 863, Crozet, VA 22932.  Please put  “CIDC donation” on the memo line.

It takes a village – won’t you help out on Saturday, July 2 for an hour?

We need your help for just an hour or two on Sunday, July 5.  Below is the website to sign-up to help with the Crozet Independence Day Celebration (CIDC) next Sunday, July 5, between 5PM to 10PM. There are a variety of tasks and time slots. Most of the time slots are only an hour – so there’s lots of ways to help and still enjoy the event.
To sign up, go to:
< Sign-up Genius page coming soon>
When you sign-up it will ask for your name, email and, optionally phone number.  No one else can see your email and phone.  We promise we won’t share it.  It’s helpful for us to have it if something happens and we need to let you know about a last minute change.

We urge church groups, civic and neighborhood associations to sign-up.  Crozet Trails Crew already has volunteered to staff one spot the whole evening!  Let’s see which group can have the most volunteers!

With your help, we can make this Crozet Independence Day celebration the best ever!

A beloved and well-supported tradition in Albemarle County, the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival supports local and national artists, musicians, and food vendors, as well as being the main source of revenue for the non-profit, community owned and operated Claudius Crozet Park.

Live Music All Weekend!

Special Spring Festival activities include craft demonstrations on the wood lathe with Tony DeMasi and raku pottery firing with Bashar and Roula Jarjour, interactive silk scarf dying with Shibumi Silks, and Mother’s Day mini-photo sessions with Crozet-based photographer Simple Will Photography.

Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival Needs Your Help!

We are in need of volunteers for many areas of the Festival – from grounds maintenance to Exhibitor booth-sitting and more. Volunteers will receive Festival admission for the full day, and the satisfaction of playing an integral part in the ongoing success of this fantastic weekend celebration of art, craft, and community at Claudius Crozet Park.
As the major fundraiser for the community-owned and operated Claudius Crozet Park, the Festival plays a vital role in the survival and growth of this Albemarle County gem.
Come be a part of it!   An extra perk, you get free admission to the festival just for donating your time!

There are several items that so far have no volunteers, including landscaping, pond-side and fence-line clearing, and firewood splitting.

Lunch will be provided to ALL volunteers.

Please sign-up to spend a half-day or full-day and feel free to participate in as many projects as you wish; no need to skimp!  This is a significant effort and we need everyone’s help. Sign up to help at:   http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040d4aa4a72aa57-pitchin2
