Your donation helps us empower and employ 250+ under-resourced Boston teens annually in a uniquely intensive program of arts, creativity, and enterprise. Through creative employment and mentorship, Artists For Humanity (AFH) teens develop the skills they need to navigate our rapidly changing 21st-century economy and prepare to step forward as valued contributors to our community.

Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. 










AFH’s new teen-driven venture – the Community Arts Initiative - is an ongoing pool of funds allocated to our teen artists to provide their pro-bono services to visually enhance and activate community spaces and organizations. Projects will include murals to beautify neighborhoods, graphic design for grassroots environmental groups, and video and web content for social justice organizations. We believe our teens are a valuable resource with creative voices and talents to offer their communities and neighbors.
