Support The Crucible
The Crucible is the largest industrial arts organization in the country dedicated to providing young people transformational experiences of picking up a torch, bending metal, and pouring bronze all under one roof. Hands-on learning opportunities like these are critical, especially in this era of physical distancing and remote learning.
Operating at reduced capacity due to the COVID-19 crisis, The Crucible is relying on support from our community to support arts education access programs, employment for artists, and relief programs for our 150+ faculty artists and staff members.
Your Gift Makes The Difference
Each year, The Crucible welcomes 5,000 young people ages 8-18 for hands-on workshops that inspire creative connections and spark personal growth.
AccessTo Sustainable Transportation
We are supporting our community with expert bike maintenance when safe bike transportation is needed more than ever. A recently expanded Bike Shop is providing monthly Bike Fix-A-Thons and expanded repair and maintenance classes for youth.

For many working artists, this crisis is not over. We are continuing our relief efforts as long as our community needs it, including free, weekly grocery distribution and $250 gifts from The Crucible’s Community Relief Fund.
