There’s more than one way to be a Hippo.

Whether you’re able to support us through creative supply donation, volunteering, or by financial contribution, we’re grateful for what you bring to the table.

Your generosity enables creative materials to be available to all who step inside our art supply thrift store. It also sustains the creative programming that serves to celebrate and support differing mental and emotional capacities.

Here are the ways you can partner with Indigo Hippo.

Creative Supply Donation

Donations keep our shelves full and our artists inspired. Indigo Hippo happily accepts all new and gently-used goods that can be repurposed into creative materials. Donations can be dropped off at our storefront location at 1334 Main St. in Cincinnati, OH. A complete list of what donations can be accepted can be found here.


We’re always eager to accept a helping hand. Whether you’d like to get involved with our creative arts programming or help us sort through donated supplies at our shop, there’s a place for you here. To learn more about getting involved, please contact:

Financial Donation

Financial support helps keep our storefront, staff, and creative programming growing. Indigo Hippo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with all donations being tax-deductible. One-time and recurring donations are accepted and securely processed through our site via credit card or PayPal.
