With your support, Root Division has been cultivating community-minded artists and arts-minded community, with growing impact, year after year.


This year we provided low-cost studio space for a total of 40 artists and harnessed over 3,800 hours of volunteer service for some of San Francisco’s neighborhoods in greatest need.  In the past 12 months, we provided free art classes to over 1,100 youth in ten after school programs; offered opportunities to be creative to over 500 adults; showcased the work of more than 350 artists; hosted over 7,800 visitors; and partnered with over 150 local businesses.


While we have been hard at work creating programs and opportunities that intentionally bring together diverse groups of artists and audiences, we know we can do more. Now more than ever, we must continue to empower artists to be active, engaged, powerful forces for good.


Like many other businesses and non-profits, Root Division has been profoundly impacted by COVID-19. While our vision for the future is grounded in hope, innovation, and optimism, we need the community’s support to effectively plan for a sustainable year ahead.


While so much of the next year is unknown, our commitment to remain fierce advocates for art’s positive impact is stronger than ever. We are dedicated to being a beacon of light and anchor of stability for artists and arts education in the Bay Area for years to come.


We hope you will support Root Division by making a charitable gift. Your contribution helps us do what we do best — EMPOWER artists, FOSTER community service, INSPIRE youth, and ENGAGE voices through the visual arts.


Thank you!


Michelle Mansour, Executive Director
