Drawing Dreams is a nine-year old California-based nonprofit organization that donates art supplies and
children's books to hospitalized children through children's hospitals' Artist-in-Residence and Child Life
programs in the United States, Canada and Italy.
Talented children and professional artists from 72 countries support our mission. You can see their work in
our website's Children-Helping-Children and Artists-Helping-Children galleries.
Through our arrangements with manufacturers and suppliers of artists' materials for children we are able to
purchase age appropriate paints, brushes, Ampersand canvases, markers, sketch pads and Peter Pauper
Press scratch-and-sketch products at cost or below wholesale and distribute them to hospitals. Some of
these materials are given to hospitalized children as birthday, holiday gifts, or as departing gifts when they
leave the hospital. But most are used for in-care therapy, "a powerful tool for our young patients in coping
with and processing their hospital experience," as one of our hospital's art therapists put it.
Our goal is to increase our giving to include hospitals in all fifty states as well as abroad, and to inspire
artists everywhere to donate their talent and time at local children's hospitals.
Our work is funded by the auction of art, photography and luxury travel packages donated by supporters of
our mission and by contributions from individuals, corporations, trusts and foundations. Drawing Dreams is
a 501c (3) pubic charity registered with the State of California Office of the Attorney General Registry of
Charitable Trusts. Our tax ID number is 26-3917721.
