Helping Hands Gallery (HHG) uses art in some way to serve charitable causes. Artists may produce works specifically to be sold for charity or creators or owners of artistic works might donate all or part of the proceeds of sale to a good cause. Such sales are often conducted by auction. Alternatively, artworks may be exhibited (and possibly be available for sale) with ticket sales being donated. Such exhibitions sometimes incorporate art related to or by those who benefit from the charitable donations.
Some additional points to keep in mind:
When making a donation, give only your best work. I know it’s tempting to go digging in the back corner of the attic to give away an orphaned piece of artwork, but remember that the attendees and a charitable event are likely your target customers you want to show them your best work. I’m sure that most charities would be happy to see their contributors benefit from their participation, after all, you’re far likelier to donate again in the future, but this shouldn’t be your ultimate goal. While you should take advantage of any benefits available through your contribution, even if you don’t get any immediate advantage, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have helped the community.
Thank you for your generosity by joining our community of donors
