Lolla Cares works to introduce Chicago youth to the diverse creative opportunities in the festival industry and reduce barriers to arts access in Chicago schools. In 2021, Lolla Cares reaffirmed its commitment to the city with the creation of the Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund, a $2.2 million donation to support arts education in Chicago Public Schools (CPS). Distributed through local nonprofit, Ingenuity, the funds will support more than 100,000 CPS students over five years. Outside the classroom, Lolla Cares’ partnership with After School Matters supports after-school and summer programs that allow Chicago teens to learn new artistic skills and display their artworks at Lollapalooza. Lolla Cares also provides post-secondary opportunities through the Music Festival Career Fair, an April 2 networking event that highlights employment opportunities at Chicago festivals and pathways to careers in the creative sector for students at City Colleges of Chicago, one of the largest community college systems in the country.

Lollapalooza is generously supported by T-Mobile, Bud Light Seltzer, Solana, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Toyota, PayPal and BMI.
