Established in 2017, Metallica’s All Within My Hands foundation works with partners around the world to combat food insecurity, provide funds in areas of natural disasters and support education with the ground-breaking Metallica Scholars Initiative, now in its fourth year. 100% of donations go directly to AWMH’s charity partners. As always, Metallica covers all administrative costs. To date, All Within My Hands’ collective efforts have raised nearly $12 million – providing $5.9 million in grants to career and technical education programs, over $2.5 million to combat food insecurity, and more than $3.3 million to disaster relief efforts.

100% of ticket sales and donation proceeds from the Helping Hands concert – and its accompanying auction of items and experiences that goes live Dec. 5 – will go directly to those in need via All Within My Hands. The previous two Helping Hands Concerts in 2018 and 2020 helped to raise more than $3 million dollars collectively.
