Marty Gear Costuming Arts and Sciences Fund
The Marty Gear Costuming Arts and Sciences Fund provides grants for innovative projects and activities that promote the art and science of costuming, either in a specific locale or the community as a whole.
The Fund was established in 2014, and is named in honor of Marty Gear, a founder of the ICG and a strong supporter of costumers branching out and trying new things. It is supported by a combination of ICG membership dues, and the generosity of individual and institutional donors. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
