APPLY FOR ASSISTANCE

JWF Musicians’ Emergency Healthcare Fund is a way for individual musicians, or members of their families, when faced with a medical crisis or emergency, to receive financial assistance through 100% Tax Deductible Donations that friends, family and fans make to the Jeremy Wilson Foundation towards the individual Artist Relief Fund they wish to support.

  • All donations are 100% Tax Deductible*
  • We launch a unique Artist Relief Fund (“Artist Name” Relief Fund) campaign webpage shortly after application approval to take donations and tell the applicants story.
  • We set-up vital fundraising capability online and offer major support at specified Artist Relief Fundraising events.
  • And very importantly.  Every artist has the opportunity to work directly with a licensed social worker who will assist them in every way possible to help identify further state or federal aid programs and much more.

What We Do
JWF collects donations online, at special events and through the mail for the JWF Musicians Emergency Healthcare Fund.  We send 100% Tax Deductible* receipts to the contributing donors.
