Easel Street Alliance online art gallery supports disaster relief and artists


Easel Street Alliance, a nonprofit organization based in Milford, N.J., has announced the official launch of its “innovative marketplace website,” dedicated to empowering U.S. artists and providing crucial funding to disaster response organizations.

As the only dedicated online nonprofit art gallery that donates a portion of every sale to disaster relief while also supporting artists, ESA stands at the forefront of social impact initiatives, the alliance said.

Since its inception in November 2022, ESA has welcomed artists of all calibers, from emerging talents to seasoned professionals, united in the shared mission of aiding families and animals affected by natural disasters and conflicts. With an expansive pool of artists providing artwork and a thriving economy of art sales, ESA is uniquely positioned to bring hope to those facing unimaginable hardships.

“Our initial goal was to create an art marketplace that would empower all visual artists. This objective remains our driving force today. Together, as a community of artists and artisans, we aspire to make a significant impact on the lives of those enduring hardships beyond imagination,” said Deborah Marcks Spork, founder and visionary behind

ESA takes pride in its ethical approach, with a commitment to donate at least 20% of every sale to disaster relief organizations. By facilitating charitable giving, without imposing any commissions, ESA allows artists to support worthy causes while retaining ownership of their art.

Customers visiting the ESA website to purchase gifts for various occasions or enhance their homes and offices are not only acquiring original artwork from talented U.S. artists but also actively participating in charitable endeavors. Every purchase contributes directly to disaster relief efforts through ESA’s strategic partnerships with leading organizations, including Direct Relief, Doctors Without Borders, and IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare), each selected based on its impactful work and high-ranking among charities.

ESA encourages the public, artists, and art enthusiasts to unite in this noble cause, collectively contributing to the betterment of all.
