The Youth Art Team is making an impact in our community! Will you help us keep it going?

Wait. Isn’t Youth Art Team a part of the city? The schools? The local art centers?

Youth Art Team is an organization that must raise its own funding in order to work with our cities, schools, and art centers to make community-based, public art projects like this possible. And we LOVE to work with them. They are amazing partners who believe in young artists and open doors for them to share their creative voices with our communities.

The most recent Youth Art Team project – the “Our Freedom Story” mural – did not receive full funding! But we knew it was too important and had to finish. Now that you’ve seen its impact, we hope that you will help Youth Art Team reach its funding needs to continue this momentum into the next project. The donate buttons above make it easy to make a one-time donation or set up monthly contributions. Your entire donation is tax-deductible. Help us make sure that the Youth Art Team moves into its next project with courage and strength!

If you prefer to donate by check, make payable to “Youth Art Team” and mail to:

Youth Art Team has become its own nonprofit! Our community is asking for more from us, and more young artists want to join in. So after growing carefully for eight years under the care of Link CCD, another nonprofit, Youth Art Team has set off and formed a 501(c)(3) of its very own. This will allow us to apply to funders we have not had access to in the past and to build sustainability into the Youth Art Team so we can keep inspiring young, creative people to be leaders in our community for years to come. We can’t do this alone, and we’re asking for your help!

Your gift will help us:

  • provide summer camps for 80 young artists,
  • continue our momentum into the next collaborative art project without pulling back,
  • provide everything the Youth Art Team needs to dream big about our long-term future in the community.

Your special donation of any amount will join the donations of others, adding power to the work of Youth Art Team artists!


If you’d like a receipt, please include your contact information for us and you’ll receive acknowledgement from the Youth Art Team, a registered 501(c)(3).
