Boston Music Maker COVID-19 Fund
A fund to provide financial relief to music makers in the Boston area affected by lost revenue from gig cancellations resulting from public health concerns related to coronavirus. Small grants of up to $200 will be made rapidly to applicants who demonstrate:
a) lost revenue from shows, festivals, and events canceled due to coronavirus/COVID-19
b) residency in Greater Boston as defined by The Boston Foundation's catchment area.
The Record Co. is administering the fund "on the house" and covering credit card fees so that 100% of contributions go directly to affected music makers and groups.
For more information and to apply please visit the fund's page on our website: www.therecordco.org/covid-19
Update Tuesday 3/31: Grateful to share that over $60k has been raised to date, and more than 300 applications have been approved and funded. We have now received more than 900 applications and we're still working hard to raise enough money to fund all requests. ***Please note: the deadline to submit applications is now April 30th, after which we’ll begin directing those in need to longer term resources**** In the meantime, please apply if you’re in need, donate if you can, and share this far and wide. Every application helps to prove the need and advocate for Boston’s music making community.
