Youth_KeithaOur program goal in 2017 for Phoenix Rising and our three developing programs: Drawing on Air, Casting Shadows, and Wingspan, is to provide 350 workshops to youth at schools and nonprofits in Denver, Boulder and surrounding counties. Because most youth serving agencies and low-income schools struggle with budget constraints, Art from Ashes offers our workshops at a 50% discount. The remaining cost to the agency is made up of grants and donations. Please consider a one-time or a monthly donation that will allow us to reach more youth in our community!

We are grateful for a donation of any amount, but hope you will consider committing to a monthly amount through This wonderful organization, a program of Community First Foundation, allows regular automatic withdrawals, as well as one-time donations through your bank or credit card. Paypal Giving Fund also offers one-time and regular donations with no transaction fees! All donations are tax-deductible.

  • A monthly donation of $100 will provide food, water and writing materials for up to 24 workshops a year.
  • A one-time gift of $2,000 will support a year’s worth of weekly 2-hour workshops for a struggling young person.
  • A one-time gift of $5,000 will provide the cost of an 8-workshop program for 20 youth ($15/hr. per young person), which would include operating costs as well as program expenses. You may select the organization, classroom or agency for which we may provide services. (If it’s for a new contract, let us know which organization you’d like us to work with, and we’ll contact them.)
  • 12 monthly donations of $117 or a one-time gift of $1,400 provides one-month’s rent (ooh, if 12 people did that…)
  • A one-time gift of $250 allows us to publish the youth poems from one 8-week session.
  • A one-time gift of $100 buys writing materials for two workshops.
  • A one-time donation of $50 allows us to bring a guest poet/artist to one workshop to inspire and encourage the youth in our programs.
