About Us

The Wishlist Foundation is a Pearl Jam fan-run nonprofit, grassroots 501(c)(3) fan organization dedicated to supporting Pearl Jam’s charitable and philanthropic efforts. We are 100% fan run, independent from the band, its management or the Ten Club, though they have been generously supportive of our efforts through the years.

Conceived in October of 2004 and officially organized in 2006, the Wishlist Foundation and Pearl Jam fans across the globe have raised over one million dollars through a variety of fundraising methods, such as pre-concert parties, auctions, raffles and donation gifting.

Pearl Jam is known for their incredibly passionate and dedicated fan base and our fundraisers are known as the premier destination spot for fan gatherings before shows, bringing in thousands of fans from all over the world.
