Partner Post | Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

So, you likely already know that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is the living, breathing monument to musical legends. Millions of fans have visited and a few famous fans too. You may have heard about this little shindig called the Induction Ceremony that happens right here in Cleveland every other year, ramping up the rock royalty ratio for a brief time.

The city has helped us bring the power of rock to life, dating back to 1986 when thousands championed the efforts to have the Hall of Fame built here, right through to our record setting local attendance this past year. But for all Cleveland has done, how does the Rock Hall give back to the region? Here’s just a few of the ways we’ve connected with the community over the years:

  • Partnering with UH for 18 years to bring Toddler Rock music therapy program to hundreds of Head Start children each year – Watch Video
  • Admission tax donated to Cleveland city schools, totaling over $10 million since opening in 1995
  • Free On-site classes, Rockin’ the Schools, K-12 curriculum that draws on the interest and cultural relevance of popular music to engage students in the subjects of social studies, language arts, math, science and tech
  • $22 billion economic impact in Northeast Ohio

Believe it or not, this institution of rock does not operate on a rock star budget – we’re actually a non-profit museum. It is through contributions that we’re able to do all of this, plus host numerous free family-oriented programs throughout the year.  We are honored to be able to open our doors to engage, teach and inspire our local community, as well as fans from around the world, through the power of rock & roll. Whether your passionate about the music, have major Cleveland pride or are looking for a new and unique way to give back, here’s how you can join us in our mission:
