How to help

Art Leads. Life Follows.

The George Beach Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created by George Beach. He started out as an advertising design major at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He then went on to the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris. During his student years, George’s greatest challenge was having the right materials and tools to complete his assignments. In 1998, to honor and encourage the creative talents for “doing much with little”, the George Beach Foundation was established. The income from the Foundation’s endowment provides annual financial awards to be used for books, fees, supplies and materials to the students, especially African Americans, attending the University of the Arts–George’s alma mater.
