Since 2004, our signature concert featuring caring musicians from across the globe has raised more than $600,000 for children (and parents) in need. 


Our Mission

The Rock and Roll for Children Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to raising money to improve the lives of critically ill children and their families. We bring musicians together from some of the most famous bands in the world to harness the power of music to raise funds for children in need. Our mission is made possible thanks to our all-volunteer organization, your charitable gifts and donations, and most of all, the talent and time that so many musicians gift us. Every cent outside of operating costs (such as postage, space rental, insurance, etc.) goes directly to the children's charities we support.

It’s all top-notch musicians and the cause is great, so the vibe is great. Everybody’s there to help, it’s all volunteers.

the children

For the past few years, RRFC has been donating to The Children's Inn at NIH. Children and families travel from all over the world to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) because conventional treatments have failed to have sufficient impact on their illnesses. Located in Bethesda, Maryland, NIH is the world’s premier biomedical research facility. The Inn gives kids a place to be kids for a while, instead of patients. At the end of the treatment day, they leave behind the IV drips, the needles, the nurses and doctors to return to The Inn and, most importantly, to the comforting presence of their families and caring staff and volunteers.
