Founded in Austin, the mission of Artful Galleries is to expand quality fine art selections for mobile customers while supporting their artists and the communities that nurture them. This is a pillar of the business. Artful Galleries donates 14% of every purchase 24/7/365 to a local nonprofit. For online sales, collectors choose the nonprofit from a list of nonprofit partners at checkout. At events such as this, a single nonprofit receives the donation.

“I started this online art gallery to make contemporary art more accessible, expand selections for mobile customers, and expose our artists to new markets – all while supporting our communities. We donate 14% of every art sale to a local charity partner. We call it ‘art with a heart,’” states Artful Galleries’ founder and owner, Debbi Smith Roark.

Music Doing Good is a nonprofit arts organization that inspires and transforms children’s lives through innovative, music-based programming and performance experiences. The outreach programs bring musical enrichment to children in Houston’s most disadvantaged communities. The programs use music to stimulate minds, spark creativity and ignite imagination.
