When Bad Does Good
“Since Chris’ sudden passing I have put all my efforts and energy into sharing his music and legacy with his fans from all over the world. I felt we needed to create a special collection to represent all of him – the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist. His soaring vocals found their way into the hearts and souls of so many. His voice was his vision and his words were his peace. This album is for his fans.” – Vicky Cornell.

Chris Cornell Infinity Tee
“Soon after Chris passed away, I was inspired to make a care package for the last Soundgarden crew from the fateful April/May tour of 2017. With the help of Josh Graham and Chris Siglin,we created shirts, stickers and hoodies for our crew. Since March 2018, I have been wearing the “Chris stage shirt” I designed and fans have been loving it on social media. Josh Graham and I created a new version of my “Chris stage shirt” that I hope our fans will like as much as I do. Vicky Cornell and I have decided to make the shirt available to the public, with all proceeds going to our various charities. Wear it with pride. Thank you and Loudest of Love to you all.” – Matt Cameron
The Chris Cornell Infinity Tee (featuring artwork by Matt Cameron and Josh Graham) is available now at: http://smarturl.it/CCFoundationTee. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will benefit The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.

Chris Cornell Honored with Scholarship at UCLA’s School of Law
A coalition led by Vicky Cornell has created an endowed fund of more than $1 million to support student scholarships at UCLA School of Law.
The Chris Cornell Scholarship honors Cornell’s commitment to justice, human rights and advocacy for those in need. Members of the coalition include several friends and colleagues of Cornell as well as supporters of UCLA Law.
UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said the endowment is a fitting tribute to Cornell. “This endowment honors an influential musical artist who cared about human rights and enables others the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world,” he said.
Chris Cornell died in May 2017 at the age of 52, but his artistic and humanitarian legacy lives on. “Vicky Cornell and all the people paying tribute to Chris Cornell’s tremendous legacy are helping to ensure that the law school will extend and strengthen its commitment to our students and to the pursuit of justice,” said UCLA Law Dean Jennifer Mnookin. “Through the work of the Promise Institute and the scholarships that this fund will support, Chris Cornell’s influence will be felt at UCLA Law and beyond for generations to come.”
“My husband and I agreed that given the opportunity of education, people have the power to change the world,” Vicky Cornell said. “UCLA School of Law is an institution known for its academic excellence and we are proud the Chris Cornell Scholarship will provide funding for future students and future leaders of the world under the leadership of Dean Mnookin and Chancellor Block.”
