Art Spark Texas (formerly VSA Texas) challenges perceptions of people with disabilities and ignites confidence, ideas and courage to make a difference. Founded in 1996 and based in Austin, Texas, our vision is to create a society where people with disabilities can participate in, learn through, and enjoy the arts. To this end, we work with artists, patrons and community members to create arts-inspired, inclusive communities of diverse individuals.
Since 1985, The Conservation Fund has protected about 28 acres an hour—nearly 700 acres a day. That is about one Central Park worth of land protected each day!

That’s a statement you’ll often see from the No Kid Hungry campaign, and I’m frequently asked how we make such an incredible return on each dollar.
We don’t get a bulk discount on food, as most folks guess. In fact, we don’t even buy food. Instead, our approach is all about finding sustainable, permanent solutions to ending childhood hunger in America.
