Our Glorious Partners, Beneficiaries, and Friends
We hope to change the conversation about fundraising and donating. When you give to our organization, you are helping us build a community where the needs of people are priority. To this end, we view our donors as investors. Your donation is an investment into the future of our country and our entire nation. By working together, we can provide the care and love that will directly reach the hearts of those in serious need.
One of our aims is to provide funds for direct care service organizations. Each year, we accept up to 15 beneficiaries from our pool of applicants. The benefits of becoming a beneficiary include an fundraising art experience organized by students in our paper heART program and the option of a painting workshop led by TJA in which they receive a portion of the proceeds. If you know of an organization that could use financial help and are doing amazing things to build community, please nominate them and have a representative complete our application process.

Interested in becoming a partner or sponsor?
We generate income for programming through art sales, sponsorships, grants, events, and workshops. The more funds we generate, the more life-changing art experiences that we can create. Your donation not only provides care for people in need, it also helps ignite empathy and compassion in those around us. We want to set a fire... a sweet fire, that will set this world aglow! Your donation will help us produce quality events and programs to reach this goal!
A few ways to sponsor:
- Provide funding for workshops, afterschool programs, and/or residencies for schools
- Provide funding for individuals to receive our programming
- Sponsor a studio event or exhibit
Due to lack of funding for the arts in many schools, we are currently looking for corporations and businesses to sponsor local schools for our paper heART programming. Please contact us at email@example.com if you're interested in this option.
