Artists for a Cause

Creatively Building Better Communities

Artists for a Cause is a Stuart, Florida based, national nonprofit that improves communities by using art as a catalyst to achieve incredible results. The organization was founded in 2009 by countertenor Terry Barber, and received it's nonprofit status in 2010. It creates professional and educational opportunities for visual and performing artists whenever art is being used as a vehicle for community improvement.


  • Artist Auction Packages: puts professional performance and visual artists to work, generating new sources of revenue and awareness for third party charities. 
  • Dance for Food: is a dance performance to feed the hungry where admission cost is nonperishable food donations.
  • Therapeutic Music Day: sends the healing power of music into nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities and the prison system.
  • A4AC Scholarship Program: provides arts education opportunities for less fortunate children.
  • Benefits Concerts: the organization has produced almost 40 performances with almost 40 charities.
  • Homeless Choir: performing group comprised of homeless people with the goal of creating sustainability and reintegration into society.

From my research it seems like this newer organization is still in its expansion and growth phase. For this reason I was concerned about featuring it on NA. That being said, I think it's important for potential donors to learn about nonprofits in various stages of their lifecycle. Your support has the power to make a good organization great, good ideas are always worth spreading, and quite honestly some nonprofits need your support more than others. Artists for a Cause may just be finding its way; however it's another great example of how people are using their talent and skills to help create stronger communities.
