The deadline is March 15, 2015, and grants will be announced in May 2015.
"It's that exciting time again," said Nina Miller, BWF executive director. "We encourage qualifying non-profits to share their goals and needs, and we look forward to making a significant impact on those that are the best fit for the Bonnaroo Works Fund." Established in 2009, BWF supports arts, education and environmental nonprofit organizations at the local, regional and national level with an emphasis on local reinvestment. Since the inception of Bonnaroo, more than $7 million has been awarded to worthy causes.
Two dollars from every Bonnaroo ticket supports BWF. The fund is also bolstered by 100 percent of the entry fees from the Bonnaroo 5K Run, the Soundwaves initiative, and proceeds from silent auctions held throughout the year. Bonnaroo supporters also contribute online and volunteer their time for special projects before and after the festival.

"It takes about two weeks to be protected after you get the flu vaccine, so we want everyone who hasn't had their flu shot to get one right away." Flu shots will be provided at no charge to patients.
