Empowering Individuals to make Positive Change in their Communities since 1995
Singing for Change (SFC Charitable Foundation, Inc.), is a private foundation established in 1995 by Jimmy Buffett, as a way of saying thank you to the friends, fans, and concert-goers around the country who have loyally supported his music career.
Initially funded with contributions from Jimmy's 1995 summer tour, Singing for Change continues to receive one dollar from each concert ticket sold during his tours. (Yes...printed on the bottom of your tickets you may see the words "$1 to SFC Charitable Foundation" - that's us. And thanks for the contribution!) Funds raised during Jimmy's concert tour are redistributed each year in the form of grants to small, grassroots organizations located primarily in communities where he performs. Singing for Change has disbursed almost $11 million in grants in its 23-year history.
