BLM Donations

Fundraiser through Commissions

-closed-

In order to support the Black Lives Matter movement on a community-level, we will be doing a 3 month long fundraiser through art commissions. We've gathered some of our community's artists to make this a reality. We're one community and will stand together in a time of pain and anger.


How does this work?

1. Scroll through this site to look at art and choose an artist to commission.
2. Email the artist and ask to commission them.
3. Once they've accepted your commission request, and details have been worked out, donate the price of the artwork or more to one of the funds below (or if you have another fund in mind, ask the artist)
4. Take a screenshot/picture of the receipt. Make sure it includes the date (Don't share your personal credit card/PayPal information). Send it to [email protected]

How to Commission an Artist

1. E-mail an artist and ask if they are available for commission and send a picture of what you want them to draw.

2. If they say yes, they'll give you a time of when it'll be done by and the price. Confirm if you're okay with that.

3. Donate to a fund in our list the amount of the artwork, after artist has accepted commission. If you have another fund in mind please ask the artist or Lily Luo

4. Take a screenshot of the receipt (make sure the date is in it).
E-mail the screenshot to [email protected] (Subject: artist you commissioned, organization/fund you donated to)
