There are many costs associated with the annual International Woodcarvers Congress (IWC), including rent, printing, postage, instructor and judge fees, awards and cash prizes, to name a few. The AWC utilizes membership dues, class fees, admission fees and other fund raising to support the cost of Congress.
Of all these sources, donations are perhaps one of the most critical portions of the budget. AWC relies heavily on donations of goods, services and cash to support the event. The Board of Directors encourages you to consider a donation to AWC in support of Congress.
