Our Business Model

Who We Serve:

Artists

As a social enterprise, Art For Your Cause takes a smaller sales percentage than any other online marketplace for artists, allowing our partner artists to earn more off each of their sales.

Nonprofits

Art For Your Cause was built on a foundation of genuinely wanting to help those in need. For this reason, we partner with many nonprofits, who directly financially benefit from this partnership.

Art Lovers

Art For Your Cause is a community of like-minded individuals coming together to change the world through art and giving. Our customers and Art Lover Affiliates enable us to bring art into the world while supporting worthwhile causes.

How We Serve:

Transparency

We believe deeply in transparency. We publicly share our financial model with anyone who wants to look at it. We are not here to get rich; we are here to help those in need while sharing a love and appreciation of art.

COLLABORATION

We work together to benefit all parties involved. Artists, nonprofits, and Art Lover Affiliates help us to grow our community. They, in turn, also grow and prosper. Everyone can benefit from our blogs, a complimentary educational resource center of innovative ideas and thoughtful commentary for the art and philanthropic communities.

Generosity

Our financial model is centered around giving. Every purchase benefits an artist, a nonprofit, and our Causability Foundation. We even pay it forward to our fellow Art Lover Affiliates, who strengthen and grow our community by sharing their love of art.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

OUR FINANCIAL MODEL

Unlike any other art-based online marketplace, we publicly share our entire financial model.

Art On Products

For art printed on products, we first subtract the cost of production, which is always 50% of the retail price.
Next, we pay out the remaining amount as follows:

1) 20% to the artist
2) 10% to a nonprofit chosen by the customer
3) 10% to Art For Your Cause
4) 10% to an Art Lover Affiliate

If there is anything left over, it is donated to Causability Foundation.

Original Art Auctions

Original artwork is now only offered via auctions. Since there is no production cost on our end, is paid out as follows:

1) 70% to the artist
2) 10% to a nonprofit chosen by the customer
3) 10% to Art For Your Cause
4) 10% to an Art Lover Affiliate

If there is anything left over, it is donated to Causability Foundation.

Mission

Art For Your Cause is a unique online community and art marketplace where every purchase pays an artist and benefits a nonprofit. 

Our Mission

  • Provide a platform for independent artists to promote and sell original art and premium artist-designed consumer goods.
  • Empower nonprofits to receive donations and build awareness for their cause.
  • Create, enable and promote a community that brings artists, nonprofits and art lovers together in a mutually beneficial way.

Our Story

As an artist, Art For Your Cause Founder, Liz London wanted a better way to be able to give back to those in her community.

Nonprofits often asked her to donate art for events promoting their causes. In the past when artists donate their work they typically do not receive any payment or recognition. Liz wanted to eliminate this “starving artist” stereotype. She knew that other artists shared her challenge. She wanted to find a way to benefit everyone involved. Voilà, the original idea for AFYC was born!

Liz formed AFYC to offer artists a platform to sell their original art and their original designs on an array of different products to customers around the world, all while making the world a better place through contributions to nonprofits.

Art For Your Cause supports over a million charitable organizations. 10% of every purchase in our online marketplace featuring original artwork and unique art products goes to a nonprofit.

My greatest hope is that Art For Your Cause enables partnerships and connections between artists, nonprofits and art lovers, by bringing them together through our shared community.

Why partner with artists?

It’s a win-win-win between nonprofits, artists, and art buyers as art purchases in our online marketplace directly support partnered nonprofits and artists. Donors and supporters are able to enjoy a new and creative way to support a nonprofit through art.

Artists

Every purchase pays an artist.

We empower artists by displaying and promoting their work in our online marketplace while at the same time supporting nonprofits. We’re focused on finding art collectors all over the globe who want to discover new artists. Being an AFYC artist gets the artist and their work in front of art collectors and buyers of art on consumer goods.

AFYC artists help make the world a better place. We donate 10% of all purchases to a nonprofit of the customer’s choosing.

It’s free to join AFYC. Artists retain their original copyright status for all submitted art. They set their own wholesale price for their original art and receive 100% of that price. In addition, they receive 50% commission for any products sold featuring their artwork.

AFYC fulfills, prints, ships, markets and handles customer service—so all the artist has to do is create more beautiful art!

Each artist has a customized dashboard that includes:

  • Summary of AFYC earnings. AFYC pays commissions twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Friday through the PayPal account associated with the artists profile.
  • Ability to share, promote and offer art/products with their unique link.
  • Templates for email campaigns, social media sharing features and website banners.

Every artist has their own personalized AFYC page that includes a short bio, photo or video, artist statement, link to the artists website and online art sales gallery.

How do artists benefit from working with a nonprofit?

When artists work in collaboration with nonprofits, who in turn share their artwork with their supportive followers, the artist has the opportunity to meet new patrons and enthusiasts for their art.  

Nonprofits cultivate dedicated, supportive and generous followings, those who are inclined to give donations to support a worthy cause. By associating with them as a champion of their cause, artists can create significant value for themselves and their art within the nonprofit’s donor base and local community.
