Your support directly impacts the lives of older adults as we cultivate their creativity, honor their experiences, and create a community that is healthy and thriving. Every day, we witness the positive impact of our program, from a new student delighting in the discovery of latent artistic talent, to seeing a renewed sense of purpose in someone who was previously lonely, isolated, and withdrawn.

We provide thousands of classes and exhibits for older adults throughout the Bay Area thanks to the generosity of donors like you. Because we see how profoundly this program impacts its participants, we want to do more. Each year AWE adds new classes to serve more seniors to increase our reach and impact.

Together we are truly changing the lives of hundreds of Bay Area seniors. Your partnership is key to the success of our program.

We can’t thank you enough!
