About The Joe Strummer Foundation
Set up by family and friends a year after Joe Strummer passed away The Joe Strummer Foundation seek to give opportunities to musicans and support to projects around the world that create empowerment through music. More can be found on www.joestrummerfoundation.org
We provide support to projects
There are many music & arts related projects here in the UK and around the world that are doing amazing things through music - social projects, rehabilitation projects and fundraising events. Music is a powerful medium, it brings people together regardless of race, social backgorund or class.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
We are contacted almost daily by music project leaders around the world asking for support. We have to go through a painful process of selecting which ones we can help and which we can not. the decision to not be able to help is 99% of the time based on financial reasons. The simple matter of the fact is, if we had more more funds we could help more music projects like WAYour Arts, OnTrack in Camden, In Place of War, Choir With No Name and so many more.
And here's how we're going to change the world
By donating directly to The Joe Strummer Foundation Main Fund, or organising your own fundraising event via this page, you will be giving support to music projects around the world. As a supporter we will also keep you closely informed on the progress of our projects, so you can see first hand where your money is going and how it is spent.
The projects we have supported over the years really have helped change lives and given opportunity to folks who need it. We invite you to read up on our work by visiting Our Projects page on our website.
Joe Strummer famously said "Without People, You're Nothing." and this quote is our mantra and it still rings loud & true to this day.
Together, with your help, we can make small changes to people's lives.
