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.

JWF Musicians’ Emergency Healthcare Fund

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 grants from donations made to the JWF Musicians Emergency Healthcare Fund.  We also provide important Social Worker Services that help identify additional state or federal assistance programs they may qualify for.


      By contributing to our general fund you help sustain a vital safety net for musicians to turn to in times of medical crisis. An important part of our program includes working with a Licensed Masters Social Worker to navigate financial aid options, insurance and other potential assistance the applicant may qualify for. Your donations are tax deductible.*
