When you make a donation to the Art Therapy Studio, you are supporting the oldest art therapy program of its kind in the country. Each contribution helps us to sustain our hospital and community-based Art Studios, and guarantees that no one who comes to us seeking service is ever turned away because of inability to pay.
You can help the Art Therapy Studio’s efforts by… • Making a donation for specific programs, or indicating that your gift can be used wherever needed • Making a memorial contribution. Please indicate the person to be remembered and the name and address of the family member you wish to be notified. • Making a donation in honor of a special event such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, etc. Please let us know the special occasion, and the name and address of the person you wish to receive notification of your gift. • Bequests – Remember the Art Therapy Studio in your will!
All donations will be acknowledged, and those noted to receive gifts made in honor of or in memorial will promptly receive a card or letter indicating the gift (gift amount is not indicated).
Other ways you can help... In addition to your donations, you can also help the Art Therapy Studio by taking part in our special events (see Events). If you are an art lover, the ArtLoan & Sale is your chance to “rent” a painting – valued from $50 to $25,000 – for a modest donation. And our Creative Confection Dessert Competition gives this area’s most well known pastry chefs the opportunity to compete for awards for the Most Decadently Delicious and Most Artistic desserts!
