NIAD Art Center is a lively non-profit and is supported in part by local and national foundations, businesses and individuals (like you.) We could use your support in whatever way you can afford. And you know we’ll appreciate your gift. So, thanks, in advance.

In a unique open studio environment, artists develop independent living skills while learning to make art. The artwork they create holds its own in a professional gallery setting, and tells the unique story of an artist with disabilities.

But to do this, it is a group effort. 

Please consider donating money. As a matter of fact, many of your neighbors already have, but don’t let that stop you. Why not check out a complete list of our donors.

Short on cash? Well, we accept donations of goods as well. We’ll take artist paints (not housepaint), paint brushes, water-based printers inks, brayers, archival art papers, high quality fabrics, yarns and threads, and re-stretched canvases. We cannot take yourold wrapping paper or greeting cards, National Geographic magazines, nor styrofoam anything.

Haven’t cleaned out your house or office lately, we’d delighted to have your time instead.

See? There are so many ways to donate to NIAD. And it’s always a win-win.
