What is Beats4Love?

Beats4Love is a philanthropic campaign developed by BeatStars. Our mission is to inspire our community to contribute to charities and nonprofits that are in the fight to make the world a better place. BeatStars donates 100% of the proceeds collected to the charities and nonprofits on behalf of our creators and has committed to matching those donations. Organizations are vetted and chosen to ensure they are making real change with the donations they receive.

Black Music Action Coalition 

Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC) is an advocacy organization formed to address systemic racism within the music business. The Coalition advocates on behalf of Black artists, songwriters, producers, managers, agents, executives, lawyers, and other passionate industry professionals. 

Black Artist Fund 

The Black Artist Fund is a nonprofit organization giving money directly to Black artists to combat systemic inequity in art. The Black Artist Fund works to raise money from donors, art lovers, and art sales to redistribute grants to Black artists and art collectives so that they can pursue their creative passions.
