100% of the proceeds from Power Puerto Rico will be donated to The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund, which is prioritizing aid and recovery efforts in areas most severely affected by the storm.

In a press release, the curators described their belief that artists should face the issues of the world head on: “We ​believe ​we ​have ​a ​role ​in ​creating ​a ​better ​future ​world ​through ​music, ​and ​hope ​this compilation ​can ​be ​a ​small ​help ​in ​redistributing ​resources ​to ​those ​who ​need ​them ​most. Making ​music ​in ​a ​vacuum ​in ​2017 ​makes ​no ​sense.”
