Fundraising for Children’s Art Programs
The Athens Art Guild fosters creativity at our events, including our annual Holiday Shoppe at the Athens Community Center and during special events at the Saturday Art Market.
Additionally, each year we provide art enrichment grants to a limited number of area art teachers. These grants are made possible through generous giving by members of the Athens Art Guild and the Athens community.
The annual Holiday Shoppe art raffle generates funds for these grants with 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction going to these enrichment grants. We send out grant applications each fall and invite art teaches in Athens and its contiguous counties to apply.
These grants, generously funded by our community, have benefited hundreds of children at area schools over the years.
