Positive Legacy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization on a mission to integrate music and service to benefit people and the environment. Working in conjunction with Cloud 9 Adventures, partner organizations and a collective of creative leaders, Positive Legacy coordinates environmental and humanitarian service projects fueled by the power of music. They create sustainable support through action from musicians and fans to transcend cultural boundaries and attend to the needs of the communities where music happens.
Leaving A Positive Legacy
Ways To Give Back
PL Covid-19 Relief Fund
As a company rooted in music and travel, Positive Legacy was deeply saddened to see the far reaching effects COVID-19 had on the live music experience and how many of their colleagues in the industry were directly affected. In response to the pandemic, Positive Legacy quickly reorganized to continue doing what they do best: helping people in need. They launched a COVID-19 Relief Fund, raising and distributing $64,000 in micro grants to independent contractors and event gig workers who help make live music events like ours happen.
Day of Service
During each of our destination events, Positive Legacy organizes a Day of Service to attend to the needs and aspirations of the communities we visit. They partner with local non-profit organizations to coordinate these environmental and humanitarian service projects that leave lasting, sustainable support for the locals and provide a cultural connection for all who choose to get involved.
Joining a Day of Service gives fans and artists the opportunity to be part of a larger project, experience local life, engage in local culture, and leave a positive legacy during their trip.
Cloud 9 Adventures & Positive Legacy partner with Trees Water People, a Colorado based non-profit organization that manages dozens of sustainability projects throughout Central America and the Caribbean. Together, we have offset over 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions during Cloud 9 events, planting over 244,000 trees, and building more than 750 clean cookstoves in Haiti and Central America.
