www.origamidesigns.org was estabished by Origami Designs in 2003.
Origami Designs is anxious to begin the paperwork process to file and secure status for origamidesigns.org as a California Tax-Exempt Non-Profit 501 (3) (c) origanization. This may take some time to set up
This is especially important for growth and giving. Origami Designs has been financially supporting all efforts of free teaching, school workshops for students and teachers alike, special work with seniors and others. This is origamidesigns.org work and is separate from Origami Designs.com
As an artist, I am limited in what I can donate due to financial contraints. Donors and those wishing to give to Origami Designs.org would be able to give and know that these monetary gift donations, are tax-deductible and charitable contributions. In addition I would have more to give. I could accept and donate more of my time, and skills to schools and organizations that are so deserving and requesting my programs. Paper and supplies are donated as well.
Gift givers to origamidesigns.org, whether your gift is money, or paper and supplies, -- you will know that ALL is strictly used only for these seminars, demonstrations, workshops, and activites that go to schools and facilities that cannot afford these programs any other way. Donors can request and receive updates on these activites. but at this time we are origamidesigns.org is not non-profit. It is a goal
The ORG website was established 8/2003.

When Origami Designs goes into schools & classrooms free of charge, we absorb the costs of all the supplies and materials.
I still hope and plan to establish a Non-Profit organization for these Educational Pursuits allowing donations to made as non-profit and thereby tax deductible to donors.
It is through the help & concern of the private sector and generous donations from those who know the benefits of the arts in education, that more art, music, dance, theater, and the like is available to our children and adult at public and community educational facilities.
If you would like to donate to help pay for the materials, please contact: OrigamiDesigns at our e-mail address & request more information. At this time donations are not tax deductible.
If you would like to be notified when we secure the Non-Profit status, let us know to put you on that mailing list.
