The Art of Hope Foundation™ is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to bringing hope and inspiration through art and educational programs. Providing "Hope for Every Child," The Art of Hope Foundation™ fosters motivation to impact and enrich the quality of life and health of the children it serves by developing and implementing programs designed to raise awareness in the community of the medical or physical challenges they, and their families, face on a daily basis.
The Art of Hope Program, the flagship initiative of The Art of Hope Foundation™, conducts volunteer led on-site art classes that provide therapy for the children, while creating artwork for an exclusive merchandise line to provide a sustainable revenue stream benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children® and the children they serve. Working closely with each hospital’s Child Life Specialists to develop activities, classes are designed to be therapeutic and fun. Participation in the program provides the tools for the children to gain self-confidence, enhance their self-esteem, broaden their imagination and reach their goals through the expression and encouragement of art, education, creativity and other means of self-expression.
Utilizing artwork created by the children, The Art of Hope Program's exclusive merchandise line is available for retail purchase online. Merchandise will also be available soon on locartion at hospital gift shops and various retail outlets. Net proceeds from merchandise sales benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children®. As a charitable organization, The Art of Hope Foundation™ is volunteer driven and supported by individuals and corporations who want to see every child thrive and rise above their life’s challenges.
This is made possible by the financial support and generosity of individuals and corporations.
