In response to the recent tornado destruction through the community of Joplin, MO, Show Me Music Fest has joined with the United Way of the Ozarks to raise funds for long-term recovery for the community, and will be holding both a live auction and silent auction during the festival, with all proceeds going towards relief efforts. A bucket brigade of volunteers will also be on-site collecting donations and encouraging everyone to "Buck UP for Joplin". Additional charities supported by Show Me Music Fest include Bridges for Youth, Isabel's House, Protect.org, Developmental Center of the Ozarks, Cox Health Foundation, Ambassadors for Children, Boys and Girls Town, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, and Walk for Wishes.
