Each year Boardmasters raises funds for the Boardmasters Foundation which issues one-off donations to local projects and charities, whilst continuing to work their long-term partners such as Surfers Against Sewage.

The Foundation aims to support individuals, groups, charities and organisations that fall under one of our three key pillars of focus – Culture, Force for Good and Community.
