We Raised Over $37,000 For Artists In Need: Meet the #C4Funded

“I am grateful for the organization swiftly coming to the aid of many artists suffering during this time.

From seeing one gig to the next being cancelled I really had no idea how all this was going to play out or how long.

I am very thankful I was awarded the fund.”

 

Of the 78 applicants who applied for the fund, all 78 were awarded.

65 of those 78 awardees were non-members (~83%).

To date, we have raised $37,015. All funds dispersed directly to artists in need.

We are still accepting donations for the fund!
