The Roots N Blues Foundation is a 501(c)(3) with a mission to positively impact the lives of children by celebrating the rich cultural heritage of American music through music education programs. The Foundation has created a new program to deepen our commitment to our mission. In 2020 we plan to launch the Missouri Roots Songbook Academy at The Boys & Girls Club of Columbia. Middle schoolers will experience an immersive American Roots Music history and literacy program, with the opportunity to apply for a 4-year scholarship and mentorship program.
We invite you to be a part of this gift to our community.
At the end of your festival experience, stop at any of the RFID top-up stations or the Festival box office, or look for volunteers wearing Roots N Blues Foundation t-shirts near the exit gate to let them know you would like to donate the unused funds remaining on your wristband to our nonprofit organization.
