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 please visit the fund's page on our website:

      I am an amateur musician and know many professional musicians, including my son and his wife, so I understand what slim budgets they live on and how hard it would be to switch to something completely outside their devasted field of work. I was laid off myself, but feel I can do a little for these great artists.
