Be a 2015 Festival Sponsor!

Hatch, a creative-reuse festival, is a not-for-profit event that celebrates the idea of creatively using objects again – to keep them out of the waste stream a little longer and to learn about the value of objects once thought of as waste.  It takes a lot to get a community event such as Hatch together!  Volunteers, participants, and committees to do the planning…and in-kind and cash support to make the events of the festival happen.  In order to make it a gold-standard event this year and to repeat the festival again next year, all kinds of support is needed!

And, what kind of support do you need?

By helping us put this event on, through your time, your energy, your talents and your financial support, you have the opportunity to have an impact on our community!  Volunteer!  Review this Hatch solicitation form 2015 for more information!

Thank you to our 2015 SPONSORS so far!
