Giving Tuesday is the annual event dedicated to generosity and supporting others that are a part of your community. For AATA, we are honored to be a part of the work art therapists do year-round: supporting clients, mentoring students or new professionals, or volunteering with AATA or in your community.

On his Giving Tuesday—the 10th year anniversary—we invite you to join us in supporting our community and the work art therapists do every day. Here are five easy ways you can contribute:

  1. Donate directly to one of AATA’s funds, supporting the next generation of students and researchers.
  2. Donate via Facebook during their Giving Tuesday matching campaign and share our fundraiser on social media.
  3. Renew your membership (and add a donation during check out) by logging into MyAATA.
  4. GIFT a membership to a friend, student, or colleague to welcome them into our AATA community! (Learn more in our Member Benefits page)
  5. Representing an education program or business? Purchase AATA memberships for current art therapy students or professionals through our new Affiliate Member program.

Your contribution will help AATA raise awareness about the vital work of art therapists and help us grow the profession.

Have you read Coping Through Creativity: A Mom’s Story through Childhood Cancer? This post is written by a young mother who fought her infant daughter’s cancer, but was left with her own “battle scars” that no one could see. “Through art therapy,” she writes, “I feel like a person again… and slowly, day by day, I’m finally able to breathe again.” We hope you’ll share the post as you ask others to contribute to AATA this Giving Tuesday.



We plan to recognize all our donors who contribute $250 or more in our Annual Impact Report and on our public website. We hope to add your name as we celebrate our achievements this year.
