Art Sphere Inc. (ASI) is a recipient of PTSSD funding. We are looking for individuals with grant writing experience to help us find matching funds. Due to the Covid-19 stay home regulations, we are looking to find funding lost from cancelling all our Spring and Summer fundraising events.

New ASI free online education programs are now in place to assist inner-city youth already academically and socially challenged. Our students futures need to be assisted by those with resources to help guide them to scholastic success as a growing number of our Philadelphia families dealing with grief and facing mounting financial concerns are too overwhelmed to help. We are looking to provide $300 and $600 stipends for Instructors Designers, Video editors, Social Media teams and teacher training needed to make our transition from Face 2 face to online during the Covid-19. We appreciate your help in this time where every bit of knowledge and support can make a difference even if we are working remotely!

Since 1998, ASI has used art to teach, beautify, motivate, inspire, empower, and transform the lives and communities of thousands of Philadelphians. And you can’t make this kind of difference without the support of enthusiastic volunteers, dedicated community partners, and generous sponsors. But it is through the arts that all of this has been made possible.
