Drawing Dreams is a California-based nonprofit organization that donates art supplies and children's books
to hospitalized children through children's hospitals' Artist-in-Residence and Child Life programs in the U.S.
and Puerto Rico, Canada and Italy.
We donate scratch-and-sketch art activity books, paints, brushes, markers and drawing pads manufactured
by New York-based Peter Pauper Press and gessosed painting panels manufactured by Texas-based
Ampersand Art Supply. Some of these materials are given to hospitalized children as birthday, holiday gifts,
or as departing gifts when they leave the hospital. But most are used for in-care therapy, "a powerful tool
for our young patients coping with and processing their hospital experience," as one of our hospital's art
therapists put it.
Our goal is to increase our giving to include hospitals in all fifty states as well as abroad, and to inspire
artists everywhere to donate their talent and time at local children's hospitals.
Our work is funded by the auction of art, photography and luxury travel packages donated by supporters of
our mission and by contributions from individuals, corporations, trusts and foundations. Drawing Dreams is
a 501c (3) pubic charity registered with the State of California Office of the Attorney General Registry of
Charitable Trusts. Our tax ID number is 26-3917721.
