Looking Out amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice. From neighborhood to nation, we help fund causes and organizations that often go unnoticed. Founded in 2008 by Grammy-nominated artists Brandi Carlile, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, we band together with fans, nonprofits, and corporations to translate voices of song to voices of action.

We support organizations that deliver direct care and services to the people who need it most, and who are often overlooked.


We combat social injustices by backing organizations who are on the front lines of the resistance to inequality.
