Silver Lining Giving, Inc. (DBA Silver Linings) is a 501(c)(3) California non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance people’s lives through music, film, and art. We make the lives of people afflicted by illness a little better. Silver Linings believes that helping others is the magnum opus of life's performances.

From helping to raise money for cystic fibrosis research to joining forces with Carlos Santana’s Architects of a New Dawn project, to working with Caring for Kids through the NFL Alumni Organization to helping to raise funds for the retrofit of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital's 'Rooms of Magic,' Silver Linings, our contributions are made as charitable gifts to other organizations dedicated helping our planet and its inhabitants.

Silver Linings was founded in 1997 with the generous support of Audio High.


Silver Linings, with cooperation from Audio High, recently produced an eight-concert series of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas with renowned pianist Robert Silverman. These recordings were used to introduce the MQA music format into the US and have now been chosen by Meridian Audio and Tidal to introduce MQA on Tidal (upcoming events in New York and California). Proceeds from these concerts the recordings will directly benefit the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and other projects. Silver Linings will be making a very large contribution to the new hospital wing this year! 

We are now planning a concert in Los Cabo, México with pianist Herbie Hancock to raise money to build a tuition-free school for music, art, and technology. This school will give young people the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, create art, and learn to use computers. Email us to learn more or find out how you can help. 

No Overhead

Because Audio High donates office space, staff, and other operational support, 100% of the money we raise goes to the charitable causes that we support. 

Tax Deductible

All donations made to Silver Linings are tax-deductible. Concert tickets and auctioned goods carry a trade value, and deductibility will vary. Direct donations are 100% deductible.
