Donate to Raise Awareness about Art Therapy

For five decades, the American Art Therapy Association has advocated for access to professional art therapists for everyone and the advancement of art therapy as a regulated mental health and human services profession. We've worked to support art therapists throughout every step of their careers—from establishing educational standards for those entering the field to continuing education, professional development and networking opportunities.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, the AATA is more committed than ever to advancing the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of the communities art therapists serve as well as promoting a safe, inclusive, and equitable society where all people can flourish. Join us by donating in support of our 50th Anniversary Campaign as we:

  • Educate the public about the benefits of art therapy.
  • Advocate for licensure for art therapists. The AATA's chapters are ready to launch campaigns supporting state licensure legislation in 13 states in 2019!
  • Fund trauma recovery grants to help art therapists serve communities impacted by natural disasters and traumatic events.
  • Support art therapy research through grants, publications and conferences.
  • Making diversity, equity and inclusion a core priority.
  • Provide scholarships to art therapy students and new professionals.
