We are pleased to be able to give back to the wonderful organizations that have all played a role in shaping Joel into the remarkable young man he is today.

All of these institutions do an amazing job of providing a welcoming, challenging, and educational space for individuals with developmental disabilities. They also provide a very special social environment for individuals who very often have limited opportunity for social interactions. They are crucial in providing opportunities for development, a sense of belonging, and pride in one's accomplishments. 

In 2024 10% of all Art By J Positive proceeds, and 100% of any donation you make, will be shared between these fantastic organizations:

  • BEING studio supports artists with developmental disabilities who are working in visual art and creative writing. Joel has attended BEING for many years which has helped nurture his artistic expression.
  • Camp Misquah provides a wonderful residential camping experience for adults and children with special needs. Joel has attended Camp Misquah since 2011.
  • The Capital City Condors are a family of ice hockey teams for those who are unable to play on any other hockey team due to a cognitive and/or physical disability. Joel has been a proud Condor since 2010.

In 2024 we also made these additional donations:

In addition to the institutions above, in previous years J Positive has also made donations to other important organizations that provide support for individuals with developmental disabilities throughout the world. These include: Down syndrome BC, DragonFlyThe Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, and the Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio.

Joel says "sharing is a good thing." Thank you for your generous support. 🙏
