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.

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.
