Musician Financial Aid List in the Coronavirus Crisis (Living Page)

Financial health is a musician health issue. Below you'll find a list of resource by state with application links (all working) and information. The list is being updated daily so check back as GoFundMe pages in particular are being added. Every item on this list is designated for musicians and does not link to any other general list pages.


Please note, when encouraging people you know to donate to some of the GoFundMe's, those donations are generally considered to be personal gifts and might not be tax-deductible. Tax issues may also affect the resulting payout amounts and tax requirements for you, the musician, including a W9 form. GoFundMe provides more information here.


Consider also that many of the GoFundMe applications may request personal information without security or disclosure as to how your personal information will be stored or deleted afterward. We have no responsibility in the outcome of any funds you choose to apply for either financially or in regards to your personal information.


You may wish to encourage or prioritize giving and receiving through the larger, national and regional charities or read the GoFundMe page about section carefully to see if they have nonprofit partners (501c3's) who will take on fund distribution who have tax infrastructure and resources with a history of financial distribution.


Have a resource you want added to this list for donations or distributions. Please email us here!
