PV Pledges

Let’s be honest — we’re extremely fortunate to make a living working with so many talented artists and helping them release all of their incredible music. Being a part of Polyvinyl often feels more like a privilege than a job.

We know not everyone is so lucky, and we also know that there are so many great people and organizations that seek to make our world a better place.

Over the years, we've taken part in numerous efforts to aid the greater good: curating a benefit compilation in the wake of a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan that still continues to raise money for the Red Cross, sponsoring the Pygmalion Festival right here in Champaign-Urbana, and participating in multiple Bandcamp-led drives to benefit the ACLU (to name a few).

But we can always do more.

And so we’re excited to introduce PV Pledges, a symbol of our ongoing commitment to help those doing great things in our local communities and greater music communities.

Check out what we've been up to in 2019!

  • Polyvinyl + The Get Up Kids supported Steps of Faith Foundation through sales of a limited number of test pressings for the band's album, Problems.
  • Polyvinyl + Diane Coffee supported World Resources Institute through sales of the band's album, Internet Arms.
  • Polyvinyl + Jay Som supported Trans Women of Color Collective through sales of a limited number of test pressings for the band's album, Anak Ko.
  • Polyvinyl + Palehound supported The Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights through sales of the band's album, Black Friday.
  • Polyvinyl + Generationals supported No Kid Hungry through sales of the band's album, Reader As Detective.
  • We teamed up with a few of our extremely talented musicians to produce a series of unique mugs (our new Mugshots series) from which a portion of the proceeds are donated to an organization of the artist's choosing.
  • Polyvinyl + American Football, Jeff Rosenstock, and Xiu Xiu supported reproductive rights by donating signed albums and test pressings sold via eBay auctions, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting ARC-Southeast, The Yellowhammer Fund and National Network of Abortion Funds.

In 2018 our objective was to support a deserving cause or organization one day each month by donating 10% of our total online store revenue.
