Meet the Team

Every single Fundred artist is part of the Fundred Network.  Once you complete a Fundred and mail it in to the collection center, we work for you!   Click here to see a list of participating schools and organizations.

MIT Community Innovators Lab (CoLab)
MIT CoLab staff, faculty and students have been instrumental on the team.  As a center within Massachussetts Institute of Technology Department of Urban Studies and Planning, CoLab supports the development and use of knowledge from excluded communities to deepen civic engagement, improve community practice, inform policy, mobilize community assets, and generate shared wealth.  CoLab's Empathetics Aesthetics program works with Fundred to explore art and empathy in connection to public will, planning, and policy.

Dayna Cunningham, MIT CoLab Executive Director 

Allegra Williams, MIT CoLab Empathetics Aesthetics Research Fellow & Program Manager

And a team of student interns who informed tactics and developed materials including this toolkit and the basis for this website: Rachel Finkelstein, Devon Neary, Rob Call, Kara Elliot-Ortega and Nil Tuzcu

The Fabric Workshop and Museum
The Philadelphia Fundred Mint at The Fabric Workshop and Museum is the place where you can send your finished Fundreds.  The Fabric Workshop and Museum is an organization devoted to creating work in new materials and new media in collaboration with artists coming from diverse artistic backgrounds.  Petra Floyd, Christina Roberts, and the Education Department take special care in receiving your completed Fundreds and adding them to the collection. Special thanks to the late Founder and Artistic Director, Kippy Stroud.
