Why give to the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project (APAEP)?
You have the power to support meaningful and sustained education in the arts, humanities, and sciences for people incarcerated in Alabama. Your gift will allow the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project to continue to create dynamic spaces for art and education inside of state prisons.
Your donation contributes to the national impact of arts programming and higher education in prison, a rising field assisting thousands of incarcerated students find a creative outlet and obtain college credentials. Funds donated to APAEP will directly impact students in prison across the state of Alabama.
“I am called to give to those whom society...has forgotten. When I give to APAEP, I know I am giving compassion, invaluable hope through learning, and resources to those who have many talents and gifts that they are called to give. The world has yet to see the immense artistry, intelligence, and light within incarcerated people, and I love that APAEP creates a space to nurture those gifts and pass them along to everyone. I give because it allows the students to give.”
