Gentlemen of the Road, through its business endeavours and the Gentlemen of the Road Fund will be giving time, money and energy to the causes that our community is close to. We love making music and sharing it with the world and we are lucky that this has allowed us to play a small part in leaving the world in better condition than we found it.
Every album cycle, GOTR’s Impact work will support global charities, local programs and urgent needs in the places where we play, and will always do what we can to play our part in protecting the planet.
In the past we have done this pretty quietly, but we have a great opportunity to point our friends in the direction of people and causes that are close to our heart. Together, we will make a much bigger impact.
The Gentlemen of the Road Fund was founded in 2006 by the members of Mumford & Sons and their manager, Adam Tudhope. The Fund has and will continue to donate monies to charities fighting for social justice and common good around the world, and will support the efforts of non-profit organisations doing commendable work on a global, local and urgent scale.
Information around proposals for funding are to be shared in the coming months.

In the past this pool of funding has supporting tornado relief, flooding and other important calls to action in the places where we have played. We will listen closely to our community and make sure to support urgent needs where we can.
