Unveiled earlier this week (March 17) by the Recording Academy and its affiliated charitable foundation, MusiCares, the COVID-19 Relief Fund aims to help professionals in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, which has severely impacted the global music industry. Since early March, the global coronavirus pandemic has caused a string of festival and event cancellations and music venue closures and has directly affected the artist and songwriter community.
Administered through MusiCares, the COVID-19 Fund will be used to directly support those in the music community with the greatest need. To establish the fund, both the Recording Academy and MusiCares have contributed an initial donation of $1 million each, totaling $2 million. Additionally, all Recording Academy Chapters have committed to fundraising in their local communities. Further updates and announcements will be made in the coming days.
As well, several regional Recording Academy chapters, including chapters in the South, West and East regions, have committed to creating, amplifying and sharing resources that will provide some form of comfort to its members and creators.
