Grants from corporations, private foundations, and government sources enable us to create over 50 murals each year, provide 1,500 at-risk youth with free art education, serve hundreds of inmates and former inmates from the area correctional facilities, and work with hundreds of individuals receiving treatment at behavioral health facilities throughout the city. Corporate and institutional funders also support our general operating needs and our exciting events including our annual gala fundraiser, Wall Ball, and Mural Arts Month, our annual month-long celebration of murals.

The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is an approved Educational Improvement Organization through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and the Economic Development’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), which allows participating corporations to make designated contributions that are eligible for tax credit.
The EITC program allows businesses to reduce their tax liability. In short, a contribution made to the Mural Arts Program through EITC can receive up to 90% of the gift total as a tax credit: your gift of $10,000 could result in a credit as high as $9,000!
Visit EITC’s information page here to learn more about the process and fill out an application.
Your generosity will provide valuable support to the Mural Arts Program’s award winning Art Education Program. Held year round for many of Philadelphia’s most at-risk and underserved youth, our art educators mentor young people and offer them invaluable tools to explore art as a passion and a profession.
In recognition of your support, your organization will be listed on our website and in our Annual Report. For further information, please contact our Vice President of Development, Kristina Palmer, by phone at 215-685-0759 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
