Boardmasters Foundation

Boardmasters Foundation

Boardmasters is proud to announce a new charitable foundation for Cornwall; the Boardmasters Foundation. Born out of our desire to give back and support the culture and surrounding communities that are at the heart of our festival, the Boardmasters Foundation will build on and grow the annual fundraising and charitable donations that the festival has already made year-on-year.


Each year Boardmasters will raise funds for the foundation, we will then review which projects and charities will be supporting with one-off donations that year, whilst continuing to work with our long-term partners such as Surfers Against Sewage.


Through the Boardmasters Foundation we aim to continually re-invest in our key cultural elements of surfing, music, Cornish culture and the local communities that surround our festival home in Newquay and Watergate Bay; with the goal of positively supporting local communities, projects and people all year round.


Boardmasters has been raising money for good causes and projects since 2002. Over the years we have supported a variety of local charities, organisations and projects from Surfers Against Sewage and the UK Pro Surf, to the Porth Residents Committee, the Porth Town Band and St Mawgan Minis Football Club.


In 2017 we are proud to announce this year we have raised a huge, £53,549!   

We are really pleased to announce that the projects and charities we will be supporting this year are:



If you want to be involved in helping raise money or have project or charity that you would like support for then we’d love to hear from you. 

2019 applications coming soon.
