Welcome to The Ink Well Foundation!

We are a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization of professional animators, illustrators, and cartoonists. We provide free arts activities and supplies to children facing severe illness and home-life challenges such as foster care, abuse, and neglect.

It is our hope that by creating with the very people behind their favorite TV shows, films, and books, these wonderful kids may learn the power of art as self-expression, may bond with others enduring similar challenges, and may just get a break from trying times to have some fun.

Our artists come from TV shows like Sesame Street, SpongeBob, The Simpsons, and Dora the Explorer; features such as Ice Age and The Rugrats; comic books like Batman, The Hulk, Spider-Man; and illustrations for The New Yorker, Alice in Wonderland books and much more. The Ink Well Foundation was founded in 2005.
