Colorful Minds (CM) is a global non-profit, registered 501(c)3 charity, a project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE). The mission of Colorful Minds is to uplift and empower individuals living with disabling conditions through art, partnerships, and community.

CM provides a unique platform to share and sell their work to create hope and healing, with the goal of providing sustainable work for these individuals. This allows the artists with disabilities to seek financial independence while bolstering their self-esteem. We are unique in that we seek to connect vocational training centers, artists, and other community-based groups around the world with customers who are interested in purchasing their beautiful artwork. In addition, CM invests in communities in developing countries and provides high-impact grants to support artists living with disabilities, as well as funds children’s complex medical needs.

To prevent disease and disability in developing countries, we partner with effective global health organizations to deliver cost-effective life-saving treatment to children in the poorest and most marginalized areas of the world.
