Corporate Partners and Donors

Your support will make a real difference to someone's life. Your support helps break down social barriers, ignorance and prejudice. With your help, AFTM can continue to offer quality programs and services to artists living in isolation - and help bridge the gap between them and the wider community.

We invite you to consider a partnership with Art from the Margins. AFTM's partnerships are built on shared goals, close collaboration and mutual benefit. We strive to understand who our partners are, how they operate, and what they stand for. Art from the Margins allows our corporate sponsors, partners, and their staff to become involved in the activities that make a real difference to our artists.

The generous support of our corporate partners and donors is essential to the growth and development of the AFTM program.
