SEATTLE – Pearl Jam and the band’s manager Kelly Curtis have pledged a donation of $125,000 to The United Way of Genesee County to aid in the support of Flint, Michigan residents during the area’s current water crisis. 

A close group of the band’s friends and partners including Glaser Progress Foundation, Live Nation, Brandi Carlile’s Looking Out Foundation, Republic Records, Ticketmaster, Universal Music Publishing Group and William Morris Endeavor Entertainment kindly came in with an additional donation of $175,000.
 
Funds will be donated to The United Way of Genesee County's Flint Water Fund, which serves both the immediate and long-term needs of the community. 

“This is an incredible gift for the people of Flint, one that will help address our immediate needs in the community and long-term needs that will be addressed by the Flint Child Health and Development Fund,” said Jamie Gaskin, CEO of the United Way of Genesee County.

Monetary donations will first be used for the purchase of water filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts in Flint, Michigan. After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund.  This fund will provide aid to children and families with interventions that support positive health outcomes.

One hundred percent of donated funds are used for Flint community projects and no administrative fee is assessed.
