Singing for Change funds organizations that inspire personal growth, community integration and the enhanced awareness that collectively, people can bring about positive change. We believe people can achieve sustainable self-sufficiency through vibrant, diverse communities. We focus our resources on inclusive, grassroots organizations that rely strongly on volunteer efforts, where foundation support makes a significant difference.
Most likely to be considered are organizations that keep their overhead low and collaborate with other groups in their community to find innovative ways of solving a common problem.
Singing for Change (SFC Charitable Foundation, Inc.) was created by Jimmy Buffett in 1995, and receives one dollar from each ticket Jimmy sells at his shows. We envision a world where nonprofit organizations, large and small, provide compelling opportunities for individuals to discover their power to make a difference. The foundation promotes work on the forefront of social change - helping people and communities become smarter, safer, stronger, healthier, and whole.
For the past 20 years, Singing for Change (SFC) has partnered with progressive, community-based organizations addressing the root causes of social or environmental problems. We recently narrowed our focus to projects designed to promote self-sufficiency.
Specifically, we look for groups that are
1. working to engage individuals in their communities,
2. helping people realize their full potential and become self-sufficient, and
3. creating lasting change in the communities they serve.
