Materials for the Arts
New York City’s Donation Center Supporting the Arts & Public Schools
We collect unneeded materials from businesses and individuals, and make these donations available for free to our recipients: nonprofit organizations with arts programming, government agencies, and public schools.
The MFTA warehouse is operated by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs with support from the City’s Department of Sanitation and Department of Education. Friends of Materials for the Arts is our official nonprofit partner.
Since 1978, Materials for the Arts has expanded the resources available for creative activities in New York City by facilitating reuse.
