Drawing Dreams is a 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 U.S.
and Puerto Rico, 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.
We donate age appropriate paints, brushes, Ampersand gessoed panels, markers, drawing pads and Peter
Pauper Press scratch-and-sketch art activity books to children's 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 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.
