“The arts empower. The arts give a voice to the voiceless. The arts help transform American communities and the result can be a better child, a better town, a better nation and certainly a better world.” – Robert L. Lynch, President, Americans for the Arts

Volunteer Your Time
It goes without saying, the more hands on deck, the more children we could reach. We’d love assistance in grant writing, marketing, copywriting, and fundraising. As well as event planning and attending events with us to help :) Chances are, whatever your skill set, we could use your assistance! We’re also open to any and all suggestions you may have on helping the children evolve. We can actually promise you a great time! Please fill out our volunteer application here.
Host A Fundraiser House Concert
Create an intimate experience in your home while raising money for drawchange! Billboard charting singer-songwriter John Stringer has teamed up with us to offer one of a kind fundraisers. House concerts are by far, the most fun, intimate, rewarding, and memorable concerts to be a part of. We can stage house concert fundraisers in living rooms, backyards, and on back patios; in small houses, big houses, condos, and apartments; at a winery, in a photography studio, and at a local theater. The point is that the “house” can be any space you have access to where your friends can gather, sit, and enjoy a concert. You will be guided through the entire process to make this a successful event. Please email us for more information.
Doing so is easy! You can plan a party, donate your birthday, sell your artwork, or have a bake sale! Contact us with your idea and we’ll send you all the materials you need!

Sponsorship provides more than the satisfaction that comes with sending aid; it delivers a knowledge of knowing you are lifting a child’s life, family, and community over time. Experience what just $20 a month can mean to a new friend that’s far away! Through child sponsorship, two lives are changed forever: yours and the life of your sponsored child.
