Copy of How We Work
The funds we raise finance our art and environmental projects which reach children and communities across the globe and support participating artists, educators and education establishments. We also donate funds to frontline conservation organisations that effectively protect vulnerable species in the wild as well as collaborate with cultural institutions such as museums and art galleries.
We believe that education is a key component to reversing the biodiversity crisis. Our projects provide the opportunity to learn about our precious natural world and how to take positive action to help wildlife, while experiencing the joy and self-expression of creativity. Each participant is empowered to raise awareness of vulnerable wildlife and ecosystems, through their art and the exhibitions we organise. This enables them to become environmental and cultural ambassadors.
As a small team, with artist and founder Jane Lee McCracken at the hub this structure ensures that the majority of the funds we raise go directly to support our projects and the conservation organisations we work with.
Anyone can support Drawing for the Planet through our membership plans which begin at $1 upwards or by donating via our donate page.
