Who We Are

We Provide Help When Musicians Need It Most

Founded in 1914, Musicians Foundation is the country’s oldest independent nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, crisis or transition.

Since its inception, Musicians Foundation has provided nation-wide support to thousands of musicians across all genres, offering the support necessary for them to weather financial difficulties and personal setbacks with dignity and security. Funds raised through concerts, events, bequests, and individual donations have enabled Musicians Foundation to spend over a century giving back to the artists who make the music.
