The Stained Glass Association of America Foundation (SGAAF), integrates the national work of the SGAA into the fabric of our local communities. By introducing innovative glass-making techniques and fostering educational initiatives, we aim to transcend traditional boundaries, making stained glass accessible to everyone. Through curated lectures from designers, stained glass-making workshops, and scholarships, the Foundation endeavors to educate and inspire creativity into a new generation of tradespeople and craftspeople.
With curated lectures from designers, in our stained glass-making workshops, and with the help of our scholarships, the Stained Glass Foundation works to empower the mentors and artisans of today, lighting the way for a new generation of tradespeople and makers in our craft!
The SGAAF is headquartered in Buffalo, NY.
SGAAF Scholarships support:
- Academic research, conservation studies, emerging and established artists, and accessibility to glass-making opportunities
- Emerging professionals to gain crucial experience and access to programing.
- Research and development studies that support the preservation, education, and integrity of the stained glass industry at all levels.
