HOW TO HELPMake a difference
Your support is vital to help us reach more children
How often do you get a chance to change someone’s life in a really positive way? There are many ways you can support us. Whether you’re a artist or not, you can bring a much needed help to our program!
Paintbrush relies heavily on financial and in kind donations. The school never would have existed if not for the generous support of regular people who want to make a positive difference in a child’s life.
You can volunteer your time or skills on a regular or punctual basis and support us in our teaching, management, events, or any other ways to help us grow and improve.
Spread the word, invite us to events, bring your own ideas or contribute your artistic skills, there are many ways you can help us aside from volunteering and donating. We welcome all ideas.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Volunteer your time and your talents
Paintbrush is always in need of Thai-speaking teachers who would be willing to volunteer their time after school on weekdays and/or weekend afternoons on an ongoing basis. If you’re interested, please get in touch and set up a time to visit the school to see how you can make an impact.
If you have a passion and ability for any other type of visual or performance art, such as photography, dance or drama – you can share your skills with the students in a workshop. These workshops can be ongoing, occasional or one-off.
If you don’t have enough time or can’t speak enough Thai to teach, you can still join us at our fundraising concerts and events held throughout the year, and help us in a way or another.
Other ways you can help
Apart from donating and volunteering, there are plenty of other ways to help our foundation.
SPREAD THE WORD
Tell your friends and family, share our website, like our Facebook page and join the greater Playing For Change movement. Visibility is the key to opportunities, collaborations, and allows us to keep moving forward and expanding. Connect us with artists, change makers, schools, art galleries or anyone who could be interested in partnering up with us.
ORGANISE/INVITE US TO YOUR EVENT
You can support us by organising a fundraising event for our school, or by inviting us to perform/exhibit at one of your events. Our students are always delighted to showcase their talents, whenever their class schedule allows it. We also happily welcome people who simply want to treat our kids to concerts, art events, or any other outing trip that will allow them to open their mind to the world of creativity. Send us a message to discuss possibilities.
USE YOUR SKILL FOR A CAUSE
If you’re an artist, there are many ways you can put your creativity to good use, some of which we might not even have thought about yet. Whether you’d like to paint our instruments, donate a composition or an artwork, we welcome all contributions. Have a look at our ongoing projects, get inspired and find out your very own way to make a difference.
We’re always eager to make new connections, exchange ideas, share dreams and involve people in many different ways. Contact us and let’s talk more!
‘We are fully aware that Paintbrush exists thanks to the people who have helped and continue to help, both in small and big contributions, in many different ways.’
