Somewhere near the top of the Bonnaroo to-do list is “change the world.” So, in 2009, the Bonnaroo Works Fund was created as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Thanks to the generosity and support of fans around the world, BWF contributes to remarkable nonprofits benefiting the arts, education, sustainability, and social significance.



The core values of the Bonnaroo Works Fund are community, creativity, and positive influence. We champion those changing the world through social impact, human development, and community inspiration. Through our festival resources & culture, we support and collaborate with nonprofit partners doing incredible things to benefit the arts, education, sustainability, and social significance. Because you Roo, they can do…


Your Contributions At Work:

We don’t deserve all the credit. Aside from the donation included in your festival purchase, a good share of the money comes from generous fans who help support the Fund through ticket add-ons, the annual Silent Auction, and other BWF fundraising efforts. There will be many new opportunities for you to support Bonnaroo Works Fund this year!

And, if you’d like to get physically involved with some of the great causes supported by the Bonnaroo Works Fund, we’re going to make that easy, too. Check out our social media channels and subscribe to our newsletter for updates on all the ways to get involved.
