"Singing for Change supports nonprofit organizations that inspire personal growth, community integration, and the enhanced awareness that collectively, people can bring about positive change. We believe people can achieve sustainable self-sufficiency through dynamic, connected, diverse communities. We focus our resources on inclusive, community-based organizations that rely strongly on volunteer efforts, where foundation support can make a significant difference. Most likely to be considered are organizations that keep their overhead low and collaborate with other groups in their community to find innovative ways of solving a common problem.
Areas Of Interest:

- Disenfranchised groups: SFC defines these groups as people who have been marginalized in society because of their low levels of skill, education or income, people with disabilities, and people who are homeless."
