With COVID-19’s continued impact on the live music industry, the Jeremy Wilson Foundation (JWF) Musicians’ Emergency Healthcare Fund needs your help to continue to respond to the enormous medical and financial burden faced by musicians and music professionals in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. As a 501(c)3 musicians’ health and services organization, the JWF is in a unique position to facilitate this fund. Your support will make a direct and lasting impact on the lives of our local musical community.
Generous friends, family, and fans helped us reach our initial fundraising goal and distribute $43,000 in emergency grants to 86 local musicians and music industry workers last month. With Governor Kate Brown’s recent announcement that live performances are unlikely to return before September, the JWF needs your support to open an additional round of assistance for impacted artists in our region. Meeting our expanded $75,000 goal will allow us to provide grants to more than 60 households facing significant financial hardship due to canceled performances.
Every dollar you give to this fund will go directly to these artists and gifts are 100% tax-deductible.
