Rock the Cause is out to make the world a better place through music. We use our record label, concert events, volunteer drives, and high school music program to raise funds, increase awareness, and recruit volunteers, for other nonprofit organizations.


What you really need to know is this. Over the past 7 years Rock the Cause has grown into one the nations most respected music nonprofits. We have helped dozens of organizations raise awareness, new stewardship, and hundreds of thousands of dollars. 


Through our work in colleges and high schools across the region we have helped hundreds of students to discover an opportunity to give back.


Sometimes it is a 99 cent song download. Other times it is a large scale concert event. All of this requires money for administration, technology, professional services, equipment etc. We deliver impact on a global scale. 


Music is our front line social mission. We do all of this on a modest budget. In fact in 2013 Rock the Cause gave nearly $250,000 to charitable organizations. We spent less than 90K on internal operations. With more financial support we can create even more impact.


Please view some of our charitable music projects below. We hope you are inspired to 'Give To The Max' to Rock the Cause!


Thank You!

Rock the Cause Records & SoulPancake, in partnership with Wayfarer Entertainment, and Olson Creative announce new Matt Hires single and video
 'Hold You Up' supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities Upper Midwest!

Matt Hires - Hold You Up
Matt Hires - Hold You Up

Charitable record label, Rock the Cause Records, announces the launch of a new single by singer and songwriter, Matt Hires. The inspiration for the song, "Hold You Up" and resulting SoulPancake & Wayfarer Entertainment music video is Minneapolis-based radio personality Paul Fletcher, whose family utilized the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Upper Midwest services while his infant daughter received medical care. One hundred percent of all net proceeds from "Hold You Up" will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Upper Midwest.

The release is timed with the 35th Anniversary celebration of Ronald McDonald House Charities Upper Midwest. Each year thousands of families from around the world, with a seriously ill child, travel to the Twin Cities for specialized medical care. Many of them stay at the Ronald McDonald House where they find a place to rest, and a community of support, while their child battles illness.     

Check out the video above for 'Hold You Up' filmed in the Twin Cities last September.

On September 4, 2014 Rock the Cause Records delivered yet another check to Children's Cancer Research Fund bringing the total music downloads contribution to over $265,000!
