The value of the arts to the lives of all peoples, all cultures, is evident since the earliest days of mankind upon this planet. Origami Designs.org exists specifically to share the benefits, the educational advantages, news & updates, in the world of origami in education & origami as art.

Origami Designs.som is anxious to being the process to file and secure status for origamidesigns.org as a California Tax-Exempt Non-Profit 501 (3) (c) origanization.
This is especially important for growth and giving.

This is the intent and direction of origamidesigns.org and is separate from Origami Designs.com
As an artist, I am limited in what I can donate due to financial contraints. Donors and those wishing to give to Origami Designs.org will be able to give and know that these monetary gift donations, are tax-deductible and charitable contributions. In addition I will have more to give. I can accept and donate more of my time, and skills to schools and organizations that are so deserving and requesting my programs. Paper and supplies are welcome donated as well even now, but you cannot use it as a deduction.
Gift givers to origamidesigns.org, whether your gift is money, or paper and supplies, -- you will know that ALL is strictly used only for these seminars, demonstrations, workshops, and activites that go to schools and facilities that cannot afford these programs any other way. Donors can request and receive updates on these activites.
