FUTURE MATERS ART CHARITY
Christy became inspired to start her own Children’s art charity while pregnant with her first child in 2013. Before the birth of her son, she set up a program to help fund children's dreams of becoming artists. Grants will be given to children in order to buy art supplies, musical instruments and other art related items or programs. Emphasis will be on children up to age 17, that show exceptional artistic talents and whose families fall into the poverty income levels. First grants will range from $200 up to $2,000.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your proposal.
Proposals must include:
1. Detailed Parent and/ or Teacher contact info (names, phone, email, address);
2. Letter of request with age and situation of the child;
3. A personal letter from the child if possible;
4. Specific requests with substantiated pricing details of items requested;
5. Photos and or videos of current art work or talents;
6. And any further details.
"Becoming an artist was the best choice I ever made and it saved me in many ways. I hope to be able to help children who may not have been given the choice of art in their lives because of financial hardship or other reasons."
We will contact all grant recipients directly and post them below, and on facebook and other social media.

OCT 8, 2016 -- So happy to announce (on my birthday) that Dahlia Munoz, 10 years old, is the winner of the Future Masters Art Contest and won a $300 art shopping spree, funded my me personally. It was so hard to choose from so many wonderful art pieces and so many talented children. But Dahlia's sculptural work of a girl dancing in the rain, made of wire, that moves freely, truly captured the essence of innovation and creativity that is at the core of this super talented artist. Thank you Dahlia for sharing and keep making beautiful art!!! You make the world a better place with all of your creations. With love, Christy

Rogers' Future Masters Art Charity gives watercolor paints to 50 talented kids from the Malcolm X Academy, where they are currently enrolled in art classes with artist Brian Moore. Schools in California, k-5 continue to suffer from severe cuts in funding. Malcolm X Academy in San Francisco's Bayview area is no exception. Thanks to the Y-Urban Services, a free After School Program is offered to ten k-5 schools in the Bayview District. Art supplies are always needed, as they work with over fifty youngsters every week. Each child who attends MXA gets extended art class during their stay at the school, and programs offered are all after school from three to six, when kids learning ability is at a maximum.
