The Arts We Give Back to top
The Arts We Give website will allow internet users an opportunity to donate art supplies to arts programs in need around the world. Donators can either shop for supplies online or donate funds which will be used to fill the wish lists of programs in need.

TAWN will also connect with small and large businesses that manufacture and sell materials which can be used as donated arts materials. This will help to distribute and recycle materials that would otherwise be discarded.
