Empowering Individuals to make
Positive Change in their Communities

Singing for Change was created by Jimmy Buffett in 1995, and initially funded with contributions from his summer concert tour. Since then, Singing for Change (SFC Charitable Foundation, Inc., aka SFC) has offered competitive grants to progressive, non-profit organizations that address the root causes of social or environmental problems.
