Playing for the Cause

Connecting Musicians and Fans with Causes that Matter

By partnering with musicians and their fans, Playing for the Cause is able to make operating grants to wonderful organizations throughout the US. After a musician picks a cause to support and announces tour dates, we open grant applications to nonprofits supporting that cause in each tour location. After reviewing applications, we select one nonprofit in each city to receive funds donated by musicians and fans.

To find a grant opportunity in your area, simply use the calendar below to search by city, musician, or programmatic focus. We are always looking for new nonprofits to support, so if you don’t find a grant that you are qualified for now, fill out our screening application so we can notify you of new opportunities in your area as they arise.

Powered by Playing for the Cause allows your nonprofit to undertake a temporary mobile giving campaign without the investment in a full mobile giving system.  Playing for the Cause will manage all of the administrative pieces of the campaign, including gift processing, leaving the promotion to you.
