Attn: Wichita-area congregations, businesses, clubs, schools, and service organizations! Please join us on Project Picking Night to select the Alternative Gifts International (AGI) project you will sponsor at our 2018 Wichita Alternative Gift Market.  The market will be held the second Saturday of November at University Congregational Church.

Selecting your project in August will allow you plenty of time to prepare for the market by recruiting volunteers, crafting ornaments, planning your table decorations, and inviting your friends, congregants, and/or coworkers.

When you have selected your project, AGI will provide posters, greeting cards, gift inserts (with descriptions of your projects that shoppers sponsor), ideas (for ornaments and table decorations), resources and more! In return, we ask that your organization contribute $50 towards publicity/advertising expenses, to help bring more donors/shoppers to the market.

Complete project descriptions can be found in the 2018-2019 AGI catalog:
