The Jeremy Wilson Foundation 501(c)3 nonprofit is an all-volunteer musicians health and service organization. Our mission is to support the hard working musicians of Oregon & Clark County, WA through medical emergencies.
JWF Musicians’ Emergency Healthcare Fund is a program designed to assist individual musicians, or their dependents, when faced with a medical crisis. Artists receive financial assistance through 100% Tax Deductible Donations that friends, family, and fans make to our General Fund (grants for everyone) or towards the individual Artist Relief Fund they wish to support. We also provide important Social Worker Services that help identify additional state or federal assistance programs they may qualify for.
