Clif Bar GreenNotes

GreenNotes recognizes that music is an amazing platform for change. Throughout history, great artists and community activists have worked together to better spread the message of social change through their partnerships, passion, and artistry.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It’s simple. The site acts as an information and matchmaking hub. This is a place to learn about GreenNotes artists and the work they’re doing; to read tips, tricks and articles about how you can get involved; and to set up a profile as an artist or nonprofit to be matched with partners based on your interests and availability.

HOW DIFFICULT IS MAKING A GREENNOTES PROFILE?

Creating an account is easy. Much like uploading any social media profile, you’ll need some basic info. Then you simply sign in; start adding music, media, logos, photos, a bio, and social media links; and fill out which social change areas or concerns most appeal to you.

HOW DOES THE DATABASE WORK?

Once you create an account, you’ll automatically be matched with either the artists or nonprofits that are most-aligned with your interests. The database has an algorithm that looks at everything from your location to your passions to help figure out who best aligns with your values.

WHAT IF I AM NOT AN ARTIST OR A NFP, BUT I STILL WANT TO HELP?

First, thank you! This site really is for everybody and we love your interest and support. One of the most powerful catalysts for sustainable change is your own voice. You can take part in many ways: Tell artists and activists you know about GreenNotes, sign up for our newsletter, support local charities and nonprofits, and get other people talking about the importance of engaging in positive change on local, national and international levels. Please sign up for our mailing list, share you favorite stories and videos, and reach out through our contact page if you have any feedback or ideas.
