GenerousArt

Generous Art envisions art purchases as community-oriented transactions — rejecting the idea that art collection is a selfish endeavor or an isolated event. Generous Art replaces time-consuming auction fundraisers with a purchase process that simultaneously funds the artist, a nonprofit and the mission of Generous Art.  When you purchase art, you may select a nonprofit organization to support from a list of beneficiaries or supply an alternate nonprofit. The retail price is divided among the nonprofit (40%), donating artist (40%), and Generous Art (20%).

Since its launch event in June of 2011, Generous Art has sold 37 pieces of art with 40% going to 13 different nonprofits.

Little Green Beans

Little Green Beans is a children’s re-sale store on a mission to be fully integrated into the Austin community both supporting local families with young children and recycling. Six days a week, hundreds of families consign gently used maternity wear, children’s wear, baby gear, toys, books and games to earn 50% of the selling price of their items in cash or store credit. Goods that we cannot sell in the store are donated weekly to successful non-profits that give them away to families in need. We promote those local organizations plus like-minded independent businesses through our active outreach program online and in the store located at Highway 183 and Burnet Road. Each month since opening in February 2011, Little Green Beans has given 100+ in kind donations and hundreds of dollars in free publicity plus contributions to non-profit organizations that have limited staff and budgets.

Hotels for Hope

At Hotels for Hope, our clients create social change through the simple act of booking hotel rooms. Whether you are a meeting planner, event organizer, individual traveler or hotel, you have the power to change lives.

Each of Hotels for Hope’s contracted hotels is asked to include a $1 charitable contribution, which Hotels for Hope then matches, dollar for dollar. In short, each room night generates $2 for the Hotels for Hope fund.
