Ludrock is a nonprofit organization inspired by the power of music to benefit the identified needs of the Ludington area. Ludrock's vision is to motivate and inspire current and future generations of musicians and provide an outlet to give back to the community.

Proceeds from the 2014 charity raffle at Ludrock benefited the Ludington Area Center for the Arts for improvements to its Performance Hall, the Ludington Area Schools Student Resource Center, and the Eric Lund Project. Collections were also taken for the St. Simon's Food Pantry.
