Connecting Children with Creativity and Community

For more than 30 years, DrawBridge has provided expressive arts programs to children at domestic violence and homeless shelters, affordable housing facilities, and in communities across seven Bay Area counties. Always free for the families we serve, DrawBridge programs provide children ages five and up the opportunity to connect with their community and explore the playful creativity that is critical to healthy development.

DrawBridge offers over 1,000 free programs each year in Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, and Sonoma counties. As our communities reopen, DrawBridge programs are in demand now more than ever.

Celebrate the Creative Power of Local Communities

Each year, DrawBridge partners with dozens of local businesses, arts organizations, and community service providers to ensure Bay Area children have access to the arts. None of this work is possible without the support of community members like you.

DrawBridge offers customizable sponsorship and partnership packages based on your organization’s objectives. Partners can select the level and focus of their gift and tailor collaborations to maximize community impact.

Partnership benefits include:

  • Public recognition of your company and its leadership for making a profound and measurable difference in your community
  • Employee team building and volunteer opportunities
  • Collaborative marketing and press efforts highlighting program and community support

DrawBridge is committed to creating tangible value for our communities and partners. We employ artists, facilitators, and volunteers with deep connections to the diverse communities we serve and contract with qualified, community-based businesses for goods and services whenever possible.

We invite you to join us in this important work. Help DrawBridge continue to build new community partnerships and deliver creative inspiration to the Bay Area children we serve.



2022 Underwriting Opportunities

In addition to year-round art groups offered at shelters, affordable housing sites, and community centers across the Bay Area, DrawBridge is delighted to share these exciting new program partnership opportunities in 2022.


DrawBridge Summer Art Adventures

Last year DrawBridge piloted a new program, DrawBridge Summer Art Adventures, to bring children the creativity and fun of summer camp online. As our communities reopen, the adventure continues with in-person programs offered at sites across the Bay Area.

Led by DrawBridge facilitators and talented Bay Area artists, children ages five and up will explore themes of art, nature, and community in their neighborhoods and beyond. DrawBridge Summer Art Adventures is offered weekly throughout the summer and free for every participating family; all materials and supplies are included. Named opportunities for Summer Art Adventures starts at the Presenting and Premium Sponsorship levels.


DrawBridge Creativity Kits

DrawBridge’s new Creativity Kits are designed to inspire creativity in children ages five and up. Filled with creative prompts and engaging art materials, hundreds of creativity kits are distributed to DrawBridge youth artists and to families at community events throughout the year. Each free kit presents a different theme or project and includes fun materials and new media for young artists to explore. Activities and materials can be used in DrawBridge art groups or independently with children and their families. Support for DrawBridge Creativity Kits starts at the Sustainer Sponsorship level.


DrawBridge Visiting Artists Program

In collaboration with area museums and community arts organizations, DrawBridge is expanding our Visiting Artist Program to place local artists at our partner sites.  Celebrating the diversity of the communities we serve, DrawBridge visiting artists provide inspiration and mentorship opportunities for DrawBridge children. Working closely with our team of trusted facilitators, each artist will develop activities and site-specific works with DrawBridge youth artists of all ages. Support for Visiting Artist Programs start at the Program Friend Sponsorship level.
