Donate a user a brand-new camera or smartphone

Do you have a smartphone or a camera you don't use? At CPB Prism, we hope to make photography as widely accessible to children as possible, and donating cameras and smartphones to children in need is one way to do that. Having a smartphone also makes it possible for children to access educational resources. 

If you have smartphones, cameras, or any other working devices that can be used for photography, please donate them to CPB Foundation along with their charger.

Why should I contribute to CPB Prism?

In an increasingly visual world, visual arts literacy is an important and often overlooked part of childhood learning. Photography, like most other forms of self-expression, is an outlet for students to see, understand, and ultimately communicate visually. It can also break barriers of spoken language, and enable story-telling in a democratic fashion.

CPB Prism is committed to imparting visual arts education to a growing community of young photographers. Designed to empower students to leverage the arts for creative expression and documentation, our programs explore vital issues and stimulate critical thought.
