About Us



The San Diego Bead Society is a non-profit organization that provides the San Diego community with an educational resource in the artistic, historical, and intercultural significance of beads and related crafts.

We are currently in the process of applying for our 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service.  Our organization is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, or scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations described under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
