Raven Drum Foundation

The Raven Drum Foundation, a 501© 3 non-profit, was founded in 2001 by Rick Allen, drummer for the rock band Def Leppard, and Lauren Monroe.

While Raven Drum has presented many types of programs in the past, their primary focus the last several years has been on military personnel and their families.

Their project, Veteran Resiliency Project, is an innovative healing program where self-care modalities are used to aid in healing combat-related trauma. The drum is the backbone for the program in which drumming, rhythm techniques, the practice of mindfulness and meditation are all incorporated.

Over the past several years, they have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of veterans and continue to expand their programs to reach more-and-more service men and women.
