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 illness or challenges like 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 brave kids may learn the power of art as self-expression and just take a break from trying times and have some fun.

Our volunteers come from TV shows like Sesame Street, SpongeBob, The Simpsons, and Dora the Explorer; features such as Ice Age and The Rugrats; Batman, The Hulk, Archie, and Mad Magazines; illustrations for The New Yorker, Alice in Wonderland books and more.
