Our Mission

Play It For Good (PIFG) is a registered Non-Profit Corporation. Contributions are tax deductible due to our 501(c)(3) IRS Determination Letter. PIFG is a volunteer organization; all proceeds from our events go to good causes, often topped-off from our main fund.

Conceptualized in 2008, the idea for Play It For Good is to promote volunteerism by "marrying" the supply of artists and young performers who want to "do good" - with the demand for funds raised by non-profits - to create an all around win-win proposition. The founders believe that we all can make the world a better place by truly focusing on virtues such as kindness, goodness, consideration for others -- as well as "doing good."

The key to success is the combination of two ingredients:

  • Passion for music, education, and volunteerism - and the belief that performance is an important teaching tool that can boost self-confidence and self-esteem in children and young adults

  • Address the challenges of cost containment for non-profits and the need for community support for fundraiser success.

Play It For Good strongly believes that the ability to perform in front of a safe audience is paramount to the development of confidence in young artists. Separately, fundraising is a key activity for non-profits. While people want to help and support a deserving cause, there is always risk to hosting a fundraiser that fails to attract benefactors. The cost of hiring entertainers hurts the bottom line and depletes funds that could otherwise go towards the cause.
