Leaving A Positive Legacy
Ways To Give Back
PL Covid-19 Relief Fund
As a company deeply rooted in a love of music and travel, we are saddened to see the far reaching effect COVID-19 has had on the live music experience and how many of our colleagues in the music and travel industries have been affected. Leaving A Positive Legacy is doing their part to give back to independent contractors and event gig workers who help make live music events like ours happen.
Positive Legacy will match each dollar donated, making every $1 you donate turn to $2!
Day of Service
Positive Legacy, Cloud 9’s official non-profit, creates a Day of Service at each of our destination live music events by attending to the needs and aspirations of the communities we visit. They partner with local non-profits to coordinate environmental and humanitarian service projects that leave lasting, sustainable support for the locals and cultural connection for the music fans. Joining a day of service will give you the opportunity to be a part of this larger project, experience local life, and engage in local culture.
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.
Positive Legacy and guests like YOU have offset over 9,000 tons of CO2 emissions from Cloud 9 events, directly funding over 24,000 trees and building over 350 clean cookstoves in Haiti and Central America.
