Many of our members are suffering a sudden and devastating loss of income right now due to cancelled concerts because of the Covid-19 crisis. As self-employed workers, most of us don’t have access to benefits like unemployment insurance or sick days.
Here is one way you can help: donate to Local 1000’s Emergency Relief Fund (ERF)
Local 1000’s ERF offers no-interest forgivable loans of up to $500 to help members through a financial crisis. We are letting our members know that we are committed to helping any member who cannot pay for food or rent through this crisis.
You do not have to be a union member to donate to the Local 1000 ERF. This is one way you can directly help a struggling musician. Please give generously.
We will publicly thank you on our website with your name only. If you wish this donation to be made anonymously, please let us know via email: [email protected]
Note that donations are not tax deductible.
Please contact [email protected] if you would like to mail a check.
