We are a group of passionate visionaries and tech nerds, whose mission is that of merging the arts with nonprofit missions.

 

The Giving Gallery is a community of artists and nonprofits working together to sell art that gives back. For every piece of art sold, 40-80% is a donation to a partnered nonprofit the buyer chooses. We have launched with mental and behavioral health nonprofits, and working to expand to social, health, and education sectors.

Vision: Artists and nonprofits partnering to sell art that strengthens nonprofit missions and community.

Mission: A mutually empowering platform for artists and nonprofits to sell art that gives back.

Founding Story:

The Giving Gallery’s founding story is rooted in passion for mental health and social change. Amanda Lipp, Founder and CEO, first had the idea for The Giving Gallery during her stay a psychiatric hospital her freshman year of college. After months of making little progress, a nurse walked over and handed Amanda a box of crayons, and that’s when everything changed. Amanda began layering and etching with crayons, wondering how her art could connect her back to the community. After Amanda was discharged from the hospital, she began volunteering with local nonprofits to meet peers and reconnect. She began auctioning her crayon art, promoting fundraisers, and sharing her story across the nation. This led to raising thousands of dollars for local to national mental health nonprofits, and sparked the vision that artists and causes could have a platform that was mutually empowering and mission-driven: The Giving Gallery.
