THIS The Make Yourself Foundation Turns 10
Incubus started The Make Yourself 10 years ago in an effort to more effectively support causes they cared about.
By donating a portion of the proceeds generated from touring, record royalties, online auctions of Incubus concert tickets and memorabilia, and special events, MYF has been able to raise over $1.6 million to benefit more than 60 nonprofits.
Incubus found that soon after 2004 there was an immediate need for the funds raised through MYF. Within weeks of the tragic 2004 Tsunami in Asia Incubus donated $100,000 to Red Cross to benefit victims.
Since that time, MYF has contributed to the following organizations:
Animal Rescue and Adoption Center
California Wildlife Center
Carbon War Room
Center for Biological Diversity
City of Hope
David Lynch Foundation
Ease-In Program/UCLA for L.A. youths
Easter Seals Blake Foundation
Global Giving Foundation
Habitat for Humanity
Heal The Bay
Heart to Heart
Institute of Music and Neurologic Function
International Rett Syndrome Association
Kristen Ann Carr Fund for Sarcoma
Life Rolls On
Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation
Music For Relief / Power The World
National Center for Science Education
The Painted Turtle
Rock The Earth
Santa Monica Bay Keeper
Save the Waves
Silverlake Conservatory of Music
TJ Martell Foundation
