Founders Entertainment is proud to make The Governors Ball a small part of Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s storied history, and honored to be a part of the Queens community. In 2023, in addition to making a donation to the Music Forward Foundation’s scholarship program (providing scholarships to youth from under-resourced communities interested in working in the music industry), the Governors Ball Gives Back program will work to support the Queens community by partnering with local non-profit organizations including Chhaya and the Elmhurst/Corona Recovery Collective (ECRC). These local non profits will have a presence at the festival, and Governors Ball is supporting them via festival partner Propeller, where fans can earn a free ticket to Governors Ball 2023 via donating to and volunteering their time towards local community service projects and other initiatives. Beyond supporting and highlighting local organizations, Governors Ball is also proud to welcome young musicians from the local community to perform at the festival, with future festival stars from School of Rock Queens and School of Rock Brooklyn kicking things off on Friday and Sunday.
