The Jeremy Wilson Foundation 501(c)3 nonprofit is a musicians’ health and service organization. Our mission is to support the hard working musicians of Oregon & Clark County, WA through medical emergencies.
APPLICATIONS OPEN April 6th thru April 20th
Due to unprecedented venue closings and performance cancellations, our local musicians and their families are struggling to find alternative ways to pay basic bills. Their health and well-being are already at a crisis level due to the stress and knowledge that the ongoing challenges have just begun. The JWF Musicians’ Emergency Healthcare Fund wants to provide as much assistance as we can – and we need your help to do this.
We have created a special DONOR-DIRECTED FUND to be used specifically for musicians and music industry workers affected by the coronavirus. Funds raised will go toward medical expenses, lodging, food, and other vital living expenses for musicians based in Oregon and Clark County, WA impacted by sickness or loss of work.
We understand that this worldwide catastrophe is impacting all of us. If you have the means, please help our vulnerable yet vital musical community weather the storm.
