THE POSTCARD PROJECT VOL. 1

The Postcard Project at Watershed was created to raise awareness and funds for local artists and organizations doing social good in the Arkansas Valley. Each artist, working closely with their organization has created an image or work of art reflecting that organization’s mission and values.

Please show your support by purchasing a postcard and sharing them around the world with friends, family and loved ones. Profits from all sales are divided equally between the artist, the organization, and Watershed!

INTRODUCING FERTILE GROUND FUND AT WATERSHED

The Fertile Ground Fund is a Colorado non-profit and 501(c)3 with the mission of funding affordable, multi-generational programming in the areas of arts, education and entrepreneurship. The Fertile Ground Fund was established by Rick Bieterman and Katy Welter, owner-operators of Watershed to bridge the gap between desired programming and our community’s means to pay for it.

Fertile Ground Fund receives 50% of sales or 75% if an artist is not involved. If an artist is involved outside of the social good organization, they receive 25% of sales. Social good organizations involved receive 25% of sales.

Payment to the organization and artist will be made after year-end, no later than January 31.
