We are excited to offer a variety of opportunities for individuals, as well as community and corporate groups, to support the programs at Free Arts from either remote or in-person!
Volunteers are invited to create Affirmation Cards using the instructions found here and send them to the Free Arts office. We include handmade Affirmation Cards in all our programs, and with about 7,000 children served every year, we always need more!
Art Supplies and Gift Cards
Check out our Free Arts wish list to help refresh our supply of art materials for children participating in resilience-building arts activities. Ship your donations to our office or drop them off in-person. If you would like to do a little bit more, hosting an art supply drive and/or gift card drive is a perfect opportunity. Let us know when you plan to host a drive, and we can provide supporting materials and make sure you have the tools you need for a successful experience.
Host a Fundraiser
Individuals, corporations, and community groups can host fundraisers to directly support Free Arts programs and change the lives of the children we serve. Free Arts has been the beneficiary of house parties, bowling nights, intimate dinner parties, and dedicated corporate events. Reach out to us for more information about how coworkers, friends, faith-based groups, students, or clubs can host events that support children who have experienced trauma.
Seeds of Hope Monthly Giving Program
Joining Seeds of Hope is the simplest way to support the children we serve for as little as $5 per month. When you become a recurring donor, you are making Free Arts a more sustainable organization that will always be there for the children we serve. Take an active role in ensuring thousands of children can continue to rely on resilience-building arts programs.
Volunteer Groups at The Bob and Renee Parsons Place for Art and Transformation
Free Arts hosts regular events for corporate and community groups to gather in our office space and assist with volunteer projects supporting our children, such as creating bilingual Affirmation Cards or assembling supplies for Bravery Bag projects. With the interesting variety of art supplies available at Parsons Place, these are fun team-building activities that have an incredible impact. During the activities, volunteers learn more about our mission, trauma-informed care model, and core programs. If your group would like to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a Volunteer Mentor
To learn more about in-person opportunities to work with our children as a volunteer mentor, or to spend time in our office and art room assisting with administrative and organizational projects, please register for an upcoming orientation.
We are so happy you have chosen to support Free Arts in the ways that fit best for you!
