In February of 2017, we announced the formation of All Within My Hands. The Foundation aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band for years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends. All funds raised will be donated to a cross-section of national and local charities... every penny from your donations will go directly to our charity partners.
Metallica Scholars Spotlight
"Thank you so much Tech Hire and also Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation for being the change and giving me the chance to make a better life for me and my kids."
Chuck had to travel a rough road to get to where he is now. His parents bounced him from place to place, he dropped out of school at the age of 14, and by the time he was in his early 20s, he was raising a family on a fast food chain manager's salary. On May 22, 2010 Chuck's store was robbed, he was held-up at gunpoint, and shot in the stomach. Thankfully he's still with us to tell his story.
The final leg of the European tour starts with a very special donation. Together with fans attending the show at Arena Națională in Bucharest, Romania and a generous sponsorship by Mastercard, Metallica presented Daruieste Viata with €250,000 before the concert. The donation is directed toward Daruieste Viata Association’s #NoiFacemUnSpital initiative.
More than a dozen Metallica Scholars celebrated their graduation from Grand Rapids Community College welding program. Students like Uniqua Sparks are now about to embark on their career with no student loans, all thanks to the titans of metal.
"Thank you so much because I wouldn't have been here. I would not have a career, I would not be moving on for my family, my children. They would not be seeing me in success. I'm in awe right now!"
Big gifts to community colleges have grown sharply over the past decade, rising from a single donation of only $2.5 million in 2009 to contributions totaling $53.1 million last year, according to a Chronicle analysis of gifts of $1 million or more.
At every stop on the WorldWired Tour throughout North American and Europe, either All Within My Hands or Metallica have donated $10,000 to a local food bank within each community the band visits. In November 2018, AWMH held its inaugural benefit: The Helping Hands Concert & Auction. Metallica headlined with a rare acoustic performance.
