OUR STORY


The brainchild of Jack O'Donnell, The Artistic Fuel Foundation is an idea decades in the making. The Artistic Fuel Foundation asserts that every person should have the opportunity to actualize their artistic potential. Our creative natures manifest as childhood imagination but too often, responsibilities and societal pressures of adulthood drain that creative energy. The Artistic Fuel Foundation envisions a world where everyone can pursue their childhood imaginations and creative ideas throughout their life, uninterrupted. Within this vision, our creative capacities are nurtured at all stages of our lifespans allowing us to live in our most profound and enlightened state.

MISSION
