2024 Month Of Giving

$192,900 Raised to Support Workforce Education

JUNE 5, 2024

“When we decided to focus on the skilled trades for our Month of Giving campaign this year, we were hopeful our community would rally around the call, and that’s just what they did. It’s really impressive to see the incredible commitment from the Metallica fans. Workforce education is an important pillar of our mission, and the funds raised in May will support the thousands of Metallica Scholars in our program.”

Peter Delgrosso, Executive Director
All Within My Hands


Throughout the month of May, you raised $192,900 (and counting… more on that below) to help us support the future of skilled trades, and the outpouring of support for our Metallica Scholars Initiative blows us away. How did you do it?! 


A lot of you loved the limited edition AWMH recoloring of Rhys Cooper’s “Wherever I May Roam” design as much as we did! That t-shirt and other qualifying merchandise sales in the Metallica Store raised $72,423 this month.

While the t-shirt was a Month Of Giving exclusive, you can always support AWMH by shopping our collection in the Met Store.


The combined efforts of 36 chapters raised $87,602.61 in this year’s competition, with ten chapters pulling in at least four figures in donations!

In the end, MASSter Of Puppets’ lead was too strong. They raised $40,633.46, completing their three-peat as Grand Prize winners! The Sunforgiven, with their $2,484.24 raised, were the lucky winners of the randomly drawn Second Prize.

Metallica Family, you always leave us speechless with your dedication and generosity.


Thanks to legendary rock music photographer Ross Halfin, we featured a beautiful piece of memorabilia in the Month of Giving Auction.

The Metallica-autographed silver foil poster (a replica of Halfin’s Metallica: The Black Album in Black & White cover), accompanied by the hardcover book itself, yielded $4,649 for our Month of Giving campaign!


May is over, but the giving continues. Our fandiem sweepstakes for this autographed ESP Truckster LTD guitar is open through July 20, and all funds raised will continue to benefit the Month of Giving campaign and our Metallica Scholars!

Donate now to enter for your chance to win this incredibly rare piece of Metallica memorabilia. Donation options start as low as $10, plus a free entry method.

We can’t wait to share our final Month of Giving total when this sweepstakes concludes.
