HELPS-AUSTIN is a directory connecting Artists, Nonprofits, Self-employed and Businesses to create a thriving community!

I'm David Richardson, the founder of HELPS-AUSTIN.  Nonprofits and businesses serve people but address different needs and have different goals. Bringing these resources together with artist offers new possibilities.

Here you'll find art, not ads! Art sales support artists and a portion of the proceeds go to a nonprofits the artist selects.

HELPS-AUSTIN brokers the transaction ensuring both buyer and seller achieve a win for both. Stripe will disburse funds and send out end of year tax statements and document all transactions to all participants.

If you're self-employed we create a marketplace to meet people needing your services. What sets you apart? Whether you are starting a career, looking for part-time work, want to earn an income with your hobby, or you're a home-based professional, HELPS-AUSTIN provides you with a directory where customers can find you.

1) Register, 2) Support a nonprofit, and 3) Create a directory listing. That simple.

It's your commitment to Austin that sets you apart from other service prpviders. Supporting intramural sports, schools, education, the arts, and the overall well-being of Austin, demonstrate how you will you feel about Austin. How you treat Austin demonstrates your commitment to your customers.
