The Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy (AHP) movement was founded in 2011as a grassroots effort by socially conscious entrepreneurs, artists, organizations, and visionaries. Our early work set out to address local issues such as veteran displacement and homelessness - specifically, women and children in Los Angeles, through holiday toy drives and other small activations. Our efforts also focused on bringing awareness to ecological issues such as sustainability in manufacturing and forced labor within the textile/fashion industry.
In 2015, we expanded our social impact efforts and embraced the United Nations'17 Goals For Sustainable Development (Global Goals). Our work began to address issues of forced labor (slave/sex/child trafficking), access to clean water, oceanic/environmental impact, youth education and empowerment, diversity and inclusion, and economic empowerment by tackling the impoverished social strata through financial literacy and ramp-on access to banking/micro-loans, etc.
Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy has embarked on successive high-profile fundraising events garnering the biggest names in entertainment, business, and technology for our cause awareness campaigns and social impact initiatives. During this time, we have also supported local and startup organizations founded by visionary entrepreneurs to increase their exposure. This is one of the axioms of AHP - provide a world-class platform for smaller, unknown charities, NPOs, and individuals who otherwise find it nearly impossible to gain exposure to high profile events.
OUR WORK & PLATFORM
AHP assembles influential individuals and organizations, and provides a platform to amplify calls to action that tackle global grand challenges. AHP leverages the power of community activism, the arts, media, and NGOs to inspire, educate, and move society in taking immediate action - for our future... the future of our children.
Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy sponsors, empowers and raises awareness for charitable initiatives and socially conscious for-profit efforts. We build world-class live and online event platforms featuring leaders in academia, business, technology, government, and entertainment, bridging disruptive ideas with communities and organizations from all sectors of industry. AHP also works with its partners on their awareness campaigns and in meeting their non-profit fundraising goals.
We believe that it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society, and the general public to work together to build a better future, with a key focus on our children as they inherit the world we create.
Guided by the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we work with initiatives across a wide range of causes including education and arts training, gender equality, early childhood development, the eradication of poverty, ending human trafficking, climate change, wildlife conservation, homelessness, the promotion of good health and well-being, and economic empowerment through diversity in business and entrepreneurship training.
"There are extraordinary opportunities that are out there, and unbelievable things that can be built. And every problem that we face as humans is an opportunity
to build a solution and a business."
