The Musicians Foundation is excited to be participating in this year’s #GivingTuesday event on December 1st, 2015.  #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to uniting people from all around the world for a common purpose: to celebrate generosity and give back. This is the Musicians Foundation’s first year joining the celebration and we hope you join us in raising awareness for the nonprofit community, specifically for professional musicians in times of need.

WHY DONATE TO THE MUSICIANS FOUNDATION?

JimmyScottFaceWith your support, we are able to help musicians such as the late great jazz vocalist Jimmy Scott. A fall during a concert left him in a wheelchair and bookings stopped when promoters heard of Scott’s infirmity. He was directed to the Musicians Foundation where Scott found the ongoing financial assistance he needed.

With all the records, I never saw any royalties. We couldn’t make our monthly mortgage payment and would have been homeless. The help we got from the Musicians Foundation has been a sheer blessing and we thank God every night for their help.”  –  Jimmy Scott

The Musicians Foundation has helped thousands of musicians like Jimmy Scott across all genres in times of need, crisis and transition, and it is only through your support and generous donations that we are able to continue to do such important work.
