will you help us keep moving the needle?

Imagine an organization that connects and embraces immigrants with education and assistance.

One that believes all people deserve safe and well-paid work.

One that dignifies a skilled trade and reignites national pride.

One that supports fashion businesses large and small to deepen their roots in our community.

That organization is Rightfully Sewn.

We have built a state-of-the-art seamstress training and fashion design atelier in the heart of the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District. On Monday, July 9, 2018 we announced the public portion of our Atelier Founders Capital Campaign to raise $50,000 for Phase II of our buildout. Phase II will advance our atelier by funding critical needs, including: exterior and interior signage, two workstations for staff and interns, and pattern grading software called Optitex, which every scaling fashion design entrepreneur needs access to. 

 

Give today and your gift will be doubled by a generous matching grant from The Robinson Family Foundation.

 

There are two ways to donate: 

1. You can donate online here. A gift of any amount is greatly appreciated. If interested, you will see we have included suggested giving levels to help you make a deeper impact:

2. You can donate by check. Please make your check out to Fractured Atlas with Rightfully Sewn in the memo line, and mail to Rightfully Sewn, PO Box 410861, Kansas City, Missouri 64141. We will then mail you a donation receipt for your records. 

Rightfully Sewn is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Rightfully Sewn must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
