Please mark your calendar to join Metallica for a celebratory evening on March 28, 2020 at The Masonic in San Francisco for a live performance by the band to benefit the All Within My Hands Foundation.

North Idaho College’s latest round of Metallica Scholars received their tickets to a brighter future when the college awarded them a total of $92,600 in scholarships at NIC Parker Technical Education Center.

The All Within My Hands auction is back! September's item is a studio used drumhead played by Lars Ulrich during the November 10, 2015 rehearsal of the song "Confusion" on Metallica's 2016 release, "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct," and is autographed in black sharpie by all four members of Metallica.

The band played 25 shows this summer and made large donations through its All Within My Hands foundation in each city it visited.

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.

Gateway received a $100,000 grant from Metallica’s “All Within My Hands” Foundation. The foundation selected the technical college as one of 10 to be the host site of the inaugural Metallica Scholars program, offering a restructured 8-credit course at a highly-reduced cost to students.

Dubbed the Metallica Scholars Initiative, the band is providing ten community colleges around the country with $100,000 to help develop career paths and improve trade skills. According to the American Association of Community Colleges, which partnered with the band, the funds will directly support more than 1,000 students who collectively will become the first cohort of "Metallica Scholars."

The heavy metal band Metallica is about the last place North Idaho College President Rick MacLennan would have expected to find champions of the school’s career-technical education program. “It’s not just a typical scholarship,” MacLennan said. “They’re directing support and resources toward obstacles students would not be able to overcome without this support.”

Metallica made a huge donation to a Manchester-based homeless charity before their sold-out gig at the Etihad Stadium. The heavy metal legends handed over an astonishing £40,000 to Northern Quarter-based Coffee4Craig. Charity boss Hendrix Lancaster said the cash is enough to fund their work for the next 12 months.

Where Metallica leads, the government should follow. While the rest of us were distracted by stories of America’s aristocracy fake-rowing their way into elite colleges, the heavy metal band just made the right kind of donation: $1 million in grants to 10 community colleges ($100,000 per college) to fund career and technical education programs.

For the second time in six months I am at the L.A. Food Bank with one of the biggest rock bands in the world. This past December I was here with members of the Foo Fighters for a barbeque and benefit to raise money for the food bank.

This time I am here on a Wednesday afternoon with Metallica' bassist Robert Trujillo, who is here as part of the "Day Of Service." He is here with dozens of volunteers, sorting foods, packing bags to feed the hungry.

Metallica fans across the United States took a stand in the fight against hunger by volunteering at their local food banks.

Over 3,000 Metallica fans and AWMH supporters came out strong and showed the kind of remarkable impact that can be made when we unite to work in service of others.

When Metallica met with ­professor, philanthropist and new acquaintance Dr. Edward H. Frank in 2017 to consult on its new All Within My Hands (AWMH) charitable foundation, Frank advised the heavy metal titans to "do no harm" by steering clear of potentially contentious causes.

Meanwhile, Spokane Community College and North Idaho College are getting in on the trend by offering scholarships to students who want to pursue careers in health, information technology and manufacturing. Grants are made available through the Metallica Scholars program, which awarded 10 colleges nationwide including SCC and NIC.

A primary focus of Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation has been the fight against hunger. With every stop on the band’s WorldWired Tour, at home and abroad, the guys have made a donation of $10,000 to a local community food bank. That act of touching the lives of people in cities the tour visits inspired members of the crew to start a campaign of their own.

Ten colleges from across the country will receive $100,000 to support more than 1,000 students training to enter the American workforce. These students will become the first cohort of Metallica Scholars.

All Within My Hands has had a lot to be #ThankfulFor during 2018 - primarily YOUR generosity and support!

Check out how Jim Breuer, Joe Sib, Wild Mike's Ultimate Pizza, Metallica's own Sarah Gustafson and other members of the crew, along with a few dedicated traveling fans spent their day off in Portland, OR delivering food to the homeless and Sisters Of The Road.

As we gear up to hit the road again, All Within My Hands is also preparing to assist our partners at Feeding America along with their network of local food banks.
