Consequence: Metallica’s Foundation to Donate $1.6 Million to 23 Community Colleges in 2021
Metallica have expanded their community college scholars initiative to include 23 schools in 2021, with a planned total donation of $1.6 million via the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation. The initiative helps fund programs that support students training to enter the workforce.
The Metallica Scholars Initiative began in 2019 as a partnership between the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation (AWMH) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). Participating schools were chosen through a rigorous application process, and each received $100,000 to fund “programs designed to support students training to enter the American workforce.”
