Comprised of musicians, music industry professionals, and fans, MUSIC FOR RELIEF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing aid to natural disaster survivors and protecting the environment.
ABOUT MUSIC FOR RELIEF
Music for Relief was founded by the band Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since inception in 2005 MFR has responded to more than 25 natural disasters across four continents including Hurricane Katrina, China’s Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti in 2010 and Japan in 2011, and most recently the Nepal earthquakes this year.
Recognizing the consequences of global climate change, Music for Relief expanded its focus to environmental protection and restoration in 2007. Through programs like Power the World, a collaboration with the United Nations Foundation aimed at providing sustainable energy solutions to vulnerable populations, Music for Relief is helping people, wildlife, and the environment.
Rooted in the music community, Music for Relief leverages its unique position to reach artists and countless fans around the world to raise funds and awareness for humanitarian causes. We believe that through strategic collaborations we can make a greater impact and work with partners accordingly. 100% of individual contributions go directly to our programs thanks to the generous support of our founders who cover all administrative costs.
