Rock the Earth , the Denver-based environmental advocacy and defense organization that draws support from musicians and their fans, has received a grant from Incubus for its ongoing promotion of environmental awareness at concerts and festivals across the US.

The $10,000 donation from Incubus’s Make Yourself Foundation, not only is the largest single donation the organization has received to date, but is the second grant of note within the last two months. In November 2007, Bonnie Raitt’s Aria Foundation also donated money to the three-year-old organization.

The grant from the Make Yourself Foundation will help RTE reach their goal of a 50% increase in education, advocacy, and outreach at concerts and events within the next year.

The Make Yourself Foundation, which has raised over one million dollars to date, is a registered non-profit organization that funds various causes and charities both locally and around the world. The band funds the foundation by donating a portion of the proceeds generated from touring, record royalties, online auctions of Incubus concert tickets and memorabilia, and special events.

Over the years, Rock the Earth has received grants and donations from artists such as Jack Johnson, Bonnie Raitt, The Mark Vann Foundation, the String Cheese Incident,The Rex Foundation, and Michael Franti. In addition, Dave Matthews, Bon Jovi, the Allman Brothers, Ozzfest. Their assistance and others has enabled Rock the Earth to take action to address environmental threats in the Grand Canyon, the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, and a number of other locations around the nation.
