Public - Supply was founded by four friends with a passion for design and a belief that every student has the right to an arts education. They are committed to creating distinctive, high-quality products, and to making a difference by giving public school teachers the resources they need to help their students grow through creative work.

The Public - Supply mission is simple: to support creative work in our country's public schools. Whether students are painting, acting, singing, writing, or coding, we believe that creativity helps students become more engaged in the classroom, at home, and in the world. Smaller budgets and an increasing emphasis on standardized test scores have lead to cuts in the resources devoted to the creative arts at both a national and local level. Talented, committed teachers often don’t have the materials they need for simple art projects -- stuff like blank paper, paintbrushes, and markers -- and some schools have had to cut entire departments. Public - Supply works to provide materials where they're needed and bring together creative thinkers to create a community that supports our schools.
