Founded in 2021, Causability is a cause-based grant making and for creative change makers. Causability is focused not just on a cause but its effect. We want donors and supporters to know the story behind a cause, how they are helping their communities, and to see the real world benefits from their donations.
Through offering Artist Grants we also want to encourage, empower and provide creatives, donors and nonprofits the ability to collaborate within their communities through causes, to see sustainable, real world impact and benefit from their work and donations.
Artist Grants are not just funding opportunities, we want to sponsor creatives the ability to collaborate on cause based art programs within their communities.
As a creative, I know what it’s like to be a struggle, trying to help me local community and make money. And in 2019, I started a business, Art for Your Cause, to help artists keep more money from the sales from their art.
I’m also a donor who wants to give money to make the world a better place, so I know how challenging it is to find worthy causes, run with integrity and transparency. I couldn’t find a place where sincere changemakers could breathe life into meaningful causes.
This got me thinking:
What about people (like creatives) who want to help others, but don’t know how to?
- What’s the best way to immediately impact local communities?
- What’s the most effective way for creatives to do this?
- How do we support creatives that want to better their local communities and not starve doing it?
- What about supporters who want more information about who, where and what our donations are funding?
As the founder of Causability we have addressed almost all of these questions. except the last one. We are actively looking for board members, grant writers, volunteers and donors.
