Why I give:


“AS220 provides a community that has helped me live and operate as an artist in the world at large. I’d much rather pay rent to a nonprofit organization that provides a community for artists to grow and express themselves than most alternatives, but AS220 is more than just a place to live and work. The experiences had here are capitally unquantifiable, so I throw the organization a few extra clams when I can while shouting, ‘Utopia or Oblivion!’” – Joe DeGeorge, AS220 resident and musician


Our programs also need supplies to help them achieve their goals! We’d happily accept the following in-kind donations:

AS220 Youth:

  • Non-perishable snack food and bottled water for snack time
  • Paint and paint brushes
  • Computer paper

Media Arts:

  • Black and white 35mm film
  • Audio visual equipment such as microphones and tripods cables
  • Photo inkjet paper

[Note: please contact us on or 401-263-3166 before donating in-kind items to ensure they can be put to good use! If we are unable to accept your donation, we’ll point you in the direction of another local organization that may benefit from your gift.]
