Bassnectar - Dollar Per Bass Head 2014Dear Bass Heads,

Years ago we started Dollar Per Bass Head – an initiative to give back to our community and causes that matter to us. We started collecting $1 for every ticket sold for our shows and have since raised over $500,000 to give to organizations voted on by YOU!!!!

As we blow through another magical journey together on the NVSB Tour 2014, it is time to donate another $75k and for you all to choose which organizations you would like to show the most support. The org with the most of your votes will receive $25,000, the 2nd will get $20,000, the 3rd $15,000, the 4th $10,000, and the 5th $5,000!

Please take a moment to learn about each organization below and check out their websites before placing your vote.

    I think it’s amazing to see an organization for mental health. My dad suffered from bipolar and depression and I recently lost him to suicide. Bassnectar’s Rochester show was just a few weeks after he passed away and it was the first time my sister and I were able to let loose and smile. We both raised $6,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in memory of my dad, so happy to see Bassnectar giving back to something that means so much! Much love.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Sorry to hear about your Dad Kaylin – I have felt your pain first hand. The amount of money you raised is amazing! Sending love back your way 🙂

  • This is really really great. The Bassnectar team is the true embodiment of Music’s Social Responsibility… How can we propose to be a part of the nominee list next year? We got’s ta pay the IRS to turn our registered charity into 501(c)(3), so we can do more good with music professionals.

    Here is a documentary we are launching in partnership with a hip hop artist, Eligh, to spread awareness around sexual exploitation of young girls in Brazil to the music community. http://bit.ly/bizFFE1

    WE CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU! <3 #bassheadsforlife #dohashtagsevenworkhere

    I would love to see some causes supporting the environment/conservation, as well as animal welfare/rights causes. I love humans and we all need help no doubt, but at least give the opportunity to support the other creatures on this earth. The earth is mother of us all in the end. Bassnectar and dubstep is all about love & bass and we need to share that love to the ends of the earth!! Thank you for listening! I believe these causes are so important and yet so unconsidered. Thank you for these amazing charity opportunities. What you’re doing is beautiful. Love & bass forever!

    This is a long shot but please look into Chronic Lyme disease. It is an epidemic and so many people are suffering. Watch the YouTube documentary under our skin for more info.

    • nick

      I know from personal experience how much trouble lyme disease that isn’t properly diagnosed/treated affects someone’s life. I had lyme and a co infection that the normal dose of antibiotics didn’t even come close to getting rid of then was told I was cured. Little did I realize I was still just getting sicker and sicker. It took me almost a year more of antibiotics and a lot of searching for subwoofer who knew what they were taking about to finally even partially recovery.

  • Laken Bowley

    Perfect timing…early voting starts Monday here. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Stevo

    I’m voting Headcount! Wish there were some environmental and/or conservation groups on this list, though!

  • nick

    I would vote for the khan Academy but I agree that I wish there was one organization on here to support the earth and/or the animals on it as well. How do we go about placing our vote?

  • Bob Downs

    My vote is for Center for Rights.

  • Gabe DeCicco

    I work as a homeless prevention specialist in Springfield MO and I gotta say seeing one of our partners (NAMI) on this list almost made me cry a little…. Sustainable funding is always a social service agencies dream, and I know I’m not going to stop going to shows any time soon! If this becomes a trend among social minded artists, maybe we can win the world to harmony. Truly spectacular, thank you guys so much!

  • indigitalformat

    Yeah! Rock n Roll’s new paradigm shift! You rock! Thanks and Cheers!

  • Lauren

    Mental health is an extremely important & under discussed topic. Thrilled to see NAMI on the list.

  • Joshua

    I vote for a charity that teaches the community about the importance of trees to the environment and how they help fight climate change and harbor all life
