artists nonprofits & businesses | working with you

HELPS-AUSTIN is more than just a marketing company – it's a force for good in the Austin community. We're dedicated to helping nonprofits, small businesses, and artists thrive, while also making a difference in the lives of Austin's homeless population.

What sets us apart? For one, we're not your typical "for-profit" company. While we do make money, 100% of our profits are directed toward charity. That means when you work with us, you're not just getting great marketing services – you're also contributing to a good cause.

But that's not all. We've also made it incredibly easy to donate with confidence. Our website allows you to vet nonprofits through GuideStar, so you can be sure you're supporting legitimate organizations. Nonprofits themselves can also participate by registering on our website and selecting artworks to use as donation premiums. When those artworks sell, the revenue is split equally between the artist, the nonprofit, and HELPS-AUSTIN.

But we don't just stop at art sales. We also partner with businesses to create sales opportunities that benefit everyone involved. Participating businesses not only promote goodwill but also offer customers a fun diversion while they wait for products and services. It's a win-win for everyone.

how you can make a difference in your community BY enjoying art?

As an Austin resident, you have the power to make a difference in your community by supporting local artists and nonprofits. When you buy art through HELPS-AUSTIN, you're not just getting a beautiful piece for your home - you're also contributing to a better future for all.  

HELPS-AUSTIN provides a unique and rewarding platform for learning about nonprofits. Our online art gallery features original works of art, with sales revenue split equally between the artist, a nonprofit, and HELPS-AUSTIN. Artists retain full control over production, shipping, and pricing, and receive the same profit they would from a traditional art gallery sale. Buyers can choose from a range of high-quality prints and original works, often available in a framed or unframed option.

Our platform also offers nonprofits the opportunity to share their stories in a more meaningful way than a 30-second public service announcement. We provide a searchable database of information provided by the nonprofits themselves, as well as third-party resources verified through IRS tax filings. This resource is available to Austin residents year-round, making it easy to find and support causes that matter to you.

every Artist Welcome

Art is not just a form of creative expression, it's an act of love. Whether it's spending hours with a piece of paper or a canvas, every stroke and every detail is a reflection of care and thought. Art has the power to transport us to the past or inspire us for the future.

At HELPS-AUSTIN, we believe that art made with love deserves to be displayed in our online gallery. When you purchase art from our platform, you're not just supporting local artists, you're also benefiting the community. Sales from our gallery go towards giving voice to those who are making a conscious effort to create a better and kinder Austin for all.

So why not add a touch of love to your home or office with a beautiful piece of art from HELPS-AUSTIN? Your purchase will not only brighten up your space, but it will also contribute to the greater good of the community.
