Over the past year and a half, Art 4 Charities, a Ponte Vedra based company that partners with nonprofits helped raise funds for numerous local charities and organizations.

Those nonprofits include Alpha Omega Miracle Home, Ayla's Acres, Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, Crosswater Community Church, Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Learn To Read of St. Johns County, Mission House, PACT Prevention Coalition, the Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach, Save Guana Now, St. Augustine Youth Services and Vilano Beach Main Street.

Terry and Diane Machaby, founders of Art 4 Charities, are thrilled to be helping so many organizations raise funds for their worthy causes.

"I worked with nonprofits for over 20 years in North Florida and realize how challenging it can be to raise the funds needed to meet the goals of the organization", said Diane Machaby, Director of Charity Fundraising for Art 4 Charities. "My husband and I try to make the fundraising and holding events as easy as we possibly can for the charity."

The concept of Art 4 Charities is simply to offer reproductions of The Old Masters and some of the best-selling artwork and photography to people in their community and around the world with a substantial portion of the proceeds benefiting charities. The nonprofit agencies agree to inform their supporters and the general public about Art 4 Charities raising funds for them and in turn the organizations receive 40% of the proceeds of any sales designated to them.

Art 4 Charities was founded by the Machaby's of Ponte Vedra in January 2016 as a way to partner with and give back to nonprofits in their community and beyond.

Mission House was the first charity in North Florida to partner with Art 4 Charities. Lori Anderson, Executive Director of Mission House, had heard about the company and was excited to learn more about their mission to help charities worldwide.

"Art 4 Charities is such a wonderful and practical opportunity for Mission House", said Anderson. "The selection of art is wonderful and Diane and Terry are so generous to do this. We are so blessed to be a part of this project that will assist us in our efforts to assist those who find themselves homeless to obtain a roof over their head."

The company is in the process of organizing live and silent art auctions at local restaurants and golf and country clubs to benefit various charities.

Art 4 Charities art auctions can also be held by supporters of charities in their homes or at their businesses, clubhouses, churches and community centers to help raise funds to support a charity of their choice.
