We love music and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy and power that it brings to the world. Music is how we tell our stories, it reflects our culture, rallies us to action, and connects us to each other.
Around the world, we support organizations that use music to create social change. They open up access to economic systems, foster confidence, and empower new voices to be heard.
But, we can do more.
Spotify’s strength comes from our community — the people who listen on our service, the employees who build it, the partnerships we develop, and the artists we work with. We all share this belief that music is a powerful force.
Starting today, each initiative we take on can be made stronger by our collective action at Spotify.com/change. Share a song to show support. Stream a playlist from young artists. Send a girl to rock camp.
Do more with us
Our first initiative is with Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization that works with local and international teams to provide hearing care to hundreds of thousands of people each year.
Through volunteering last year, we met Jessa Mae, Isagani, and Eugene, who shared their stories with us.
Share the film to support the work of Starkey Hearing Foundation. Want to do more? You can help them reach their goal of giving 100 more people hearing care.
This is just the beginning. Get involved at Spotify.com/change.
