Entercom San Diego & Portland Form Partnership With Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation
May 17, 2017

Entercom has announced that FM 949 (KBZT) in San Diego is joining 94.7 FM (KNRK) of Entercom Portland and 99.9 FM (KISW) and 107.7 The End FM (KNDD) of Entercom Seattle in the ongoing partnership with Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation. Since the beginning of the partnership in 2015, Entercom Portland and Entercom Seattle have raised over $200,000 for Pearl Jam’s Foundation by contributing a portion of the ticket sales from their annual marquee concerts to the cause.

Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation is a public non-profit organization founded in 2006 that supports the efforts of non-profit organizations focused on community health, the environment, arts and education and social change.

In celebration of today’s announcement, Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard and Mike McCready will be on-air on 99.9 FM (KISW) and on 107.7 The End FM (KNDD) in Seattle, 94.7 FM (KNRK) in Portland and FM 949 (KBZT) in San Diego.

Each station selected its chosen organization from Vitalogy Foundation’s roster based on local passion points. This year, 94.7 FM will benefit MyMusicRX, which provides musical support to children and teens in hospitals, while 107.7 The End FM benefits Treehouse, a charity that assists over 7,000 foster children in the Seattle area each year. The ticket sales from 99.9 FM’s Pain in the Grass will go to the Downtown Emergency Feed Program and the Bureau of Fearless Ideas. Ticket sales from this year’s SPF 949 and Indie Jam in San Diego will go to the Surfrider Foundation to help keep beaches clean.

“We’re so proud to go into our third year in this partnership with Pearl Jam, to bring funding to local organizations through all of our collective fans,” said Dave Richards, VP/Programming, Entercom Seattle.

“We’re so happy to have found partners who can help increase our support of local charities simply by directing a portion of proceeds from their live concert events to our Foundation,” said Stone Gossard, Pearl Jam guitarist and Vitalogy Foundation board member.
