The Make Yourself Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by the band Incubus that funds various charities both locally and around the world.
The band generates money for the foundation through activities such as donating a portion of the proceeds generated from touring, record royalties, online auctions of Incubus concert tickets and memorabilia, and special events.
MYF has raised over $1.7 million since inception in 2003.
So where does all the money that Incubus fans donate go?
Incubus found that soon after 2004 there was an immediate need for the funds raised through MYF. Within weeks of the tragic 2004 Tsunami in Asia Incubus donated $100,000 to Red Cross to benefit victims. That was followed up with donations to the following organizations:
Heal The Bay
Heart to Heart
Institute of Music and Neurologic Function
International Rett Syndrome Association
Kristen Ann Carr Fund for Sarcoma
Life Rolls On
Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation
Music For Relief / Power The World
National Center for Science Education
