Spare Change is an award-winning video series and Musician Impact Network: a community of musicians who are empowering their audiences to raise awareness and funds for their favorite nonprofits. Founded in Pittsburgh in 2017, Spare Change began as a video series where musicians would busk for their favorite causes. Since that time, Spare Change has raised thousands of dollars for more than 10 charities by forming and supporting partnerships with musicians. At their shows, artists invite the audience to pass around a Spare Change bucket or donate online to contribute to the cause of their choice. Spare Change tracks and promotes these partnerships and the impact created over time. In 2018, Spare Change was selected as a winner of HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines Chipstarter contest, awarding $25,000 to further grow their impact.

Sheila E. headlined the 2019 Women who Rock Benefit Concert at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, which raised over $100,000 for women’s health research, benefiting MWRI. A night all about empowering women, Women who Rock has grown by over 300% YOY and features an all female-fronted music lineup.
