AidCurrent was created to tell artists stories and showcase their collective contributions to a world in need. From environmental disasters to humanitarian crises, from global problems to individuals facing momentous personal hardships, the needs around us often seem to have no limits. But neither does creativity.
Art vs. Evil. Game on.
Each AidCurrent artist is fighting their own battle in their own way. They are on the front lines along with countless others to make a stand against all that is wrong in the world. No one is responsible for all of it, but each of us is responsible for our small part. Each small contribution of art is like a small stream flowing into a larger river. That is what AidCurrent is all about.
AidCurrent itself is nothing. We are not a nonprofit. We are not an organization. We aren't even really a collective. And even thought we may sell art from time to time, we are certainly not a business in any normal sense. AidCurrent is simply a website designed to tell our stories and provide an easy-to-use interface for us to keep tabs on what we're doing with our art to benefit others.
We hope you like what you see here and whether you purchase any art from these talented folks or simply wish them well, we hope you leave this site inspired to give more to a world in need.
Is AidCurrent a non-profit organization?
No, we are just artists who like to help out where we can.
Can I donate to AidCurrent directly?
Of course you can. We don't need much, but we do spend a few dollars making this site work, so it's nice to know you appreciate it. Feel free to get generous here.
Are donations to AidCurrent tax-deductible?
No. That’s the short answer. The long answer is similar – nooooo. We aren't a nonprofit, remember?
I am an artist listed in the fund-raising totals, but I didn't provide that information to AidCurrent. How did this happen?
Occasionally artists show up on our radar that are doing amazing work and using it to benefit others. If you're listed on here, it's because we dig your work and you posted somewhere on social media or the wider interwebs about what your work was able to raise for a nonprofit. One way or another it came to our attention and when we see that stuff going on, we add it on here. If you don't want to be listed, we can remove you at any time, just say the word. But we hope you'll be stoked to be part of this and we encourage you to add your future art-as-fundraiser opportunities to the site with this form. Cheers!
These FAQ’s are no good, I have other questions.
OK, fire away then. Contact us by email here. We’d be stoked to hear from you.
