Icy-the-Siberian-HuskyThe majority of our funding comes from the Redwood Coast Regional Center, which administers and distributes state funds to vendors that provide services for the developmentally disabled. We are very grateful to the Regional Center for their continued support. A small percentage of our funding comes from sales of student artwork (for which the artists receive 50% of the profit). However, our program could not survive without the generous support of private donors and volunteers. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

We have a scholarship fund set up for students who are not eligible for Regional Center funding, which includes any artist who was over the age of 18 when they became disabled. Currently we have one student in this category. His tuition is partially paid through donations alone.

We occasionally pursue grant funding, and we are very excited about receiving a grant in 2014 for this new website and our social media expansion. We want to express our deep gratitude to the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation for supporting us.
