Project Exposure is one of many organizations that believes photography and photographers have the ability to advance the human condition. In that spirit, this is a partial list of resources for non-profits and photographers alike.

Photographer Resources


100cameras empowers marginalized children to document their lives through photography and to create positive change in their own communities. 100% of the money from the children’s purchased prints is used to raise awareness and capital to meet physical needs and empower sustainable growth within their community.

Alexia Foundation

The Alexia Foundation promotes the power of photojournalism to give voice to social injustice, to respect history lest we forget it and to understand cultural difference as our strength - not our weakness.

Audience Engagement Grant

The Audience Engagement Grant supports photographers to take an existing body of work on a social justice or human rights issue and devise an innovative and effective way of using that work as a tool for social change. We are looking for projects that serve as interventions on pressing problems and provide concrete ways for photographers, organizations, and their target audiences to create a positive impact.

Collaborations for Cause

Collaborations for Cause brings together photographers, NGOs, activists and communications professionals to discuss the collaborative future of storytelling.


collect.give (“collect dot give”) was founded in December 2009 as a place to collect contemporary photography and donate to worthy causes at the same time. The photographers featured on collect.give have pledged to donate 100% of the profits from their print sales to worthwhile causes they support.
