The music community is actively raising money for the NEO Music Relief Fund to help local musicians and music venue workers who suddenly lost their livelihood because of the COVID-19 shutdown. We know what we need to do to stay home and stay healthy, but we’re committed to keeping our music community strong, too.
We know professional musicians and venue workers have few other options when the entertainment industry closes its doors – little or no access to unemployment, few other sources of income, and the prospect of this lasting for months to come. We are working to establish this fund to help the hardest hit in our community survive the current COVID-19 crisis period, and we’re committed to keeping the fund going, so we’re ready for future challenges.
Information collected in this application will be used to communicate with you, to follow-up, and it may also be anonymously used (meaning your name will not be used without permission) to help us communicate the extent of the need. We will be making the case to funders and donors to help gather more support, and we appreciate all the ways in which you sharing your information helps us do that.
We expect to receive a significant number of applications, so we appreciate your patience as we process them. It may take a couple of weeks for the committee to review applications, but we will respond to you as quickly as possible. We know you’re struggling, and we want to help.
