The Dreaming Zebra Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit encouraging children to embrace their individuality, to express themselves creatively, and follow their artistic dreams. Your gifts help us provide art & music supplies to underprivileged children throughout the world.


Every child's painting begins with just one brushstroke. Please consider joining our key group of art-loving supporters who donate $10 or more each month. With so many children in the world going without access to art and basic supplies, we are in need of your monthly support to reach as many young artists as possible, and to give them a vibrant palette for self-expression. $10 per month!

Please join us by adding your brushstroke of color to our giving palette, and supporting our mission of helping young artists to follow their dreams.

Helping Kids Dream...

Dreaming Zebra's Community Art Recycling Program provides access to art and music supplies for thousands of children, schools, art therapy programs and community organizations throughout the United States.

In 2014, Dreaming Zebra provided free art supplies, musical instruments, and public art experiences to more than 65,000 young artists -- children who otherwise might not have experienced the joys and benefits of an art education.

Please help us to deliver more art materials to children in need, and keep the shelves stocked, by making a cash donation today to support our minimal shipping and operating costs.

Please click the donation box to the right to help us meet our goal of $10,000 by Aug. 1st, 2015.
