About Give Kids the Arts & IAFK

Give Kids The Arts is a branch of the International Arts Foundation for Kids (IAFK), a registered 501(c)(3). We collect new art supplies, new and gently used music, and dance equipment, lessons, studio time, tickets to museums, shows, and concerts and distribute these items to less fortunate children in our communities where artistic pursuit can be difficult.

While we at the IAFK organize, coordinate, and manage outreach campaigns, our ultimate success depends on the support of local communities and the generosity of the people who donate art supplies, as well as those who make monetary donations for the purchase of supplies.

Social welfare agencies, churches, local community agencies, local business leaders, and other members of the community make our outreach possible. They help us to identify needy children in our communities, and they play an important role in assisting us in collecting and distributing art supplies.

By working together, we can all introduce the beauty of the arts into the lives of those less fortunate and who need the power of the arts.
