IndieBEST is an Austin based charitable organization that was initially created by independent artists as an emergency response to the Central Texas wildfires. However, with the incredible out pour of immediate public support, much of Bastrop County’s basic needs such as food, clothing and supplies were not only met but in several cases overwhelmingly exceeded that many donations had to be turned down.
In light of these circumstances, we determined that a shift in our focus was necessary. We came to realize that the devastating toll of the wildfires would require a long-term solution to bring relief to survivors. Rather than a single fundraiser event with a one-time disbursement of funds, we have decided to broaden our scope to better meet the ongoing needs of the community.
