The Art of Giving Foundation was born from passion, diligence, and a genuine concern for the enrichment of communities and the common good. We provide art therapy services, restoration services and mural installs in Chicago Public Schools, provide art and educational supplies to CPS teachers, and provide opportunities for Chicago artists to work, give back to their community, and engage with our youth.

Our Mission

Equip Chicago public schools, community centers and local artists with art and educational resources, alongside support for facility rehabilitation. Spark transformation in our underserved communities through education, empowerment and creative initiatives.

Our Vision

Foster a future where art and culture stand as integral pillars in the educational system, championing equal opportunities and funding for underserved Chicago schools, teachers, students, and artists.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Established in 2019, the Art of Giving Foundation (AOG) envisions fostering awareness, opportunities, and enthusiasm for the arts and related needs in Chicago. AOG is committed to obtaining grants, cultivating partnerships, securing corporate sponsorships, and soliciting donations from individuals. These efforts, coupled with fundraising events, will contribute to the creation of the Art of Giving Fund. This fund will be strategically allocated to support the programs executed by AOG throughout the year.

AOG operates a dynamic system where artists and teachers can apply for essential supplies and opportunities. Following predetermined criteria and board approval, AOG extends services to selected applicants, providing not only in-kind support but also dedicated services to help them achieve their goals.
