Charity Quilts

Our guild makes quilts to donate to local charities in New York City. Our charity projects are inspired by our Mission Statement:

Our mission is to develop and promote the art of modern quilting through cooperation, education and community.

We aim to build long-term relationships with the charities we support, and we plan to do at least three charity projects per year. Check out our Photo Gallery for pictures our completed projects.

If you’re a registered charity and you’d like us to donate a quilt, you can contact us at membership@nycmetromodquilters.com

If you’d like to get involved in our charity work, we’d love to have you join us! Our charity projects are open for all guild members to participate. Anyone in the guild can join our Charity Committee – and anyone in the guild can volunteer to lead a new charity project. We’re always on the lookout for fun new ideas!

Here are our planned charity projects for the 2016/17 season:
