Donate to ArtCares for Kids
Your donations make a direct impact on the life of a child living with cancer. The young patients spend a large number of hours confined to their rooms. Help make theirs a more colorful and pleasant place! ArtCares for Kids invites you to delight everyone on your list by giving a donation in their name, and making a difference in the life of a child living with cancer.
Donations to ArtCares for Kids can be made in any denomination through the Key Biscayne Community Foundation’s secure PayPal donation portal. As a KBCF fiscal sponsorship fund, we fall under their charitable umbrella. All donations made to ArtCares for Kids are allocated to the ArtCares for Kids organization. Should you have any questions, please contact us at 305-361-2770.
Your Donation Makes a Difference
$25 ArtBag Donations will bring an ArtCares ArtBag to a patient at the Holtz Children’s and Baptist Children Hospitals. The ArtBags are gifted to bedridden children to provide a much needed diversion from their long hospital stays, and to patients upon discharge from the hospital after their completion of treatment. The ArtBag includes sketchbooks, paints, paintbrushes, canvasses, pencils, and markers. Name recognition of your gift donation will appear on the ArtBag.
$75 ArtMural Donations allow ArtCares for Kids to donate a copy of our signature ArtCares ArtMural to brighten up the hospital room of a patient at the Children’s Hospital. The ArtMural was a collaboration effort amongst all of its members, inspired by the need to add color to the hospital walls.

Volunteer Your Time
ArtCares for Kids relies on our fantastic group of volunteers, without whom we would not be able to help so many children every week.
The ArtCares volunteers meet twice per week to create art projects with the children of the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Units of the Holtz Children’s Hospital.
