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. Find out more.

Causes We Care About


We believe in the power of expression through art and support organizations that allow creative spirits to thrive.


We provide funding to organizations that work to improve their communities, no matter how big or small they may be.


We work relentlessly in fighting for gender equality and fund programs that empower women globally.


We advocate for and fund programs that educate and inform so that everyone can make better decisions for their lives and for the planet.


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.

    Meet Andrew, Age 15

    Central African Republic "I used to have a good life. But since the conflict started, things changed."… ; Andrew pauses as he remembers happier times. His life is very different now. “I’ve seen people beheaded. I’ve seen people have their hands and noses cut off. I’ve seen their bodies cut into pieces. My parents were killed. Some other family and friends too.” He is asked if he misses anything about his former life. There is another pause before he answers quietly: “There are lots of things that I miss.”

    Brandi's Birthday Drive!

    My dearest fans and friends, it's that time of year again!... In honor of my 35th birthday on June 1st, I’d like to encourage you all to contribute to the Looking Out Foundation and help us raise funds for The Story Campaign. In partnership with War Child, The Story Campaign is a sharing of stories from children who have suffered the horrors of war. As I contemplate another year, I watch images of our scenic country roll past the windows of our tour bus and I wonder what innocent children and families living in war zones must see from their windows. We’re hoping you’ll band together with us and make their views a little brighter. This year I’m turning 35, so I’m asking people to donate $35 to The Story Campaign (or whatever you can afford). No amount too small. No child left unheard.  Make music mean more. Click here to donate. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, xobc
