Art to Change the World (ACW) is a diverse coalition of artists, educators, scientists, topic experts and other change makers who have joined forces in service of positive social change. We are employing the arts, education, audience engagement and organizational partnerships to provoke discussion, reflection and action.

The fundraising breakdown for See. Say. DO is laid out below to give transparency towards what your donations supports. The largest amount needed ($4,100) is to help compensate the artists involved in See. Say. DO. We have 6 artists supported, but as a new non-profit we do not have the history to secure full funding. So we are asking for your critical support. Many people do not realize that artists, especially visual artists, generally lose money when they exhibit their work. We hope to change this. We have forgone charging admission fees in order to remain inclusive and accessible to all. ACW’s mission is to help provide sustainable opportunities for artists but we will not be able to do that without your help. If we do not pay our artists - then there will be no artists.  

We are asking for $10 (or more) to help us cover a percentage of the event and costs to pay the artists.  Indicate in comments if you want your donation to go to a specific need, person or event.
