Sometimes we can accept donations of crafting materials. Please contact us before sending anything. We sell items made by local crafters (which includes our board members) through a variety of outlets including craft shows and consignment.
Donations of collectibles and autographed pictures are appreciated and will be auctioned either at local science fiction conventions or through EBay, and all proceeds go to the charity.
If you are interested in making a material donation, please contact us before shipping anything.
*Donations to the Julien Fleming Memorial Fund may be tax-deductible depending on your individual situation. Please consult your tax-advisor for advice. Tax letters are sent for all donations over $20(US), provided we have contact information. For material donations, the fair market value will be used to determine the cash value of the donation.
Purchases of craft items or collectibles from the Julien Fleming Memorial Fund are only tax-deductible if the purchase price exceeds fair market value (FMV), and only the amount in excess of FMV may be considered a donation. (Note: this is standard practice for all non-profits)
