ABOUT US

Through the sale of music photography, Fund by Photo supports those disproportionately hurt by the same pandemic that decimated the music scene.

OUR PURPOSE

Fund by Photo hosts online exhibits featuring live music photography. Every print is sold for charity to help support those disproportionately hurt by the same pandemic that decimated the live music scene. The photographers donate the use of their photos, and we donate 100% of the net proceeds to our nonprofit partners.

Our purpose is to raise funds for organizations that provide much needed services, while providing visibility to artists and keeping fans engaged (#saveourstages).

Fund by Photo, Inc., is a DC registered nonprofit corporation. All revenue goes into the Fund by Photo Fund, a component fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation, which enables us to operate as a registered 501(c)(3) organization so that all gifts are deductible for income tax purposes. Unless directly quoted, none of the artists mentioned or shown in photographs endorse Fund by Photo or its nonprofit partners

“COVID-19 is a harsh reminder of how much live music means to all of us – fans, photographers, staff, musicians, and lots more. During this time when live music is scarce and so many people need help, Fund by Photo offers a way to reminisce, to enjoy, and to give back.”
