Now in our second decade, the Art Center continues to be the only free cultural program in this neighborhood that so desperately is in need of hope.

The impact the Art Center makes on kids’ lives is immeasurable. A safe place – in the most fundamental sense of the word “safe” – is where we start. From there we build hope and promise. Please be part of that hope and promise by making a financial contribution to the Art Center TODAY. 

Your donation helps us keep kids safe. After eleven years, the Art Center remains free to EVERY KID who wants to be here. This included nearly 2,500 students last year. Ours is an environment free of violence. Physical and emotional well-being permeates everything we do.

If you would like to partner with the South Chicago Art Center to help improve the lives of our youth by cultivating their imagination and supporting a place where positive aspirations and dreams can grow, make a tax-deductible donation online or mail a check.


In addition to monetary donations we accept art supplies, new clothing, and during the holiday season we also accept toys.  You can contact us at (773) 731-9287 for more information and to schedule a pick up or drop off time.
