The CIC has created a Recovery Fund to help our Members survive the suspension of live entertainment. These funds will provide immediate assistance for the small businesses and artisans of the costume industry. All donations are tax-deductible through our non-profit fiscal sponsor, the Artisans Guild of America.

Donate here.

The CIC is run entirely by volunteers from within the NY Costume Industry. Are you interested in donating some time to the CIC?
