Baker Industries | 184 Pennsylvania Avenue, Malvern, PA 19355 www.bakerindustries.org 

Call For Entries Art and Artisan Fair at Baker Industries October 24 – 25, 2015

A juried event benefiting Baker Industries, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit work rehabilitation program serving adults with intellectual and physical disabilities, recovering substance abusers, individuals on parole or probation, and the homeless.

Our Impact: While Baker Industries works to directly impact the quality of life of its program participants, the results are much more far-reaching: recidivism rates are reduced, welfare rolls are lowered, and taxpayer rolls are increased.

Our Bottom Line: Baker Industries accepts no government funding.  Our administrative costs are 8.6% of our operating expenses.  70% of revenue comes from payment of the jobs we do for our customers.  The balance is provided by individuals and organizations willing to make charitable contributions to our operating costs.
