Clay MaskArtreach accepts applications for volunteers, interns and assistants on a rolling basis. If you are interested in volunteering or interning with Artreach, please contact us via e-mail or fill out our online application form.

In addition, we welcome donations to help make our work possible. Artreach brings art experiences to more than 5500 individuals every year and has always offered programming at a reduced cost, but in order to keep functioning we need to make up the difference through donations and grants. Our goal is to offer free programming, but that is not a possibility without your gracious support. There are still programs we would love to do but are unable to without funding. Every donation is vital to our existence. You can choose to sponsor an individual, a program, a school, or our general operational expenses.

Thank you for your valuable support. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
