An initiative bringing together artists and their fans via live music to work on the world's most pressing issues.
PLUS1 is built from the belief that collective impact leads to social change. Through an innovative $1-per-ticket funding platform, PLUS1 partners with performing artists to add $1 to each concert ticket sold to raise funds and make grants to a wide range of high-impact nonprofits.
PLUS1 builds new engaged communities and advocates for supported causes through outreach and activation campaigns centered on the message that many small actions (like $1 donations) can lead to tangible and substantive change. As the dollars add up, PLUS1 uses its collective voice to bring attention to organizations addressing some of the world's biggest challenges.
Through this initiative, upwards of $5M million has been raised for leading social justice organizations tackling issues from poverty and injustice to the environment by artists including Arcade Fire, The National, St. Vincent, CHVRCHES, Flume, and more.
