Also Cool Artist Fund

Who we are:

Hi, we’re Also Cool .
We are a Montreal-based music & art magazine who actually pays our contributors. Frustrated with the industry norm of paying creative work with “exposure,” we aim to set a standard of proper compensation for creatives.

Why we're fundraising:

In times of precarity, artists are often among the first to be affected. The spread of COVID-19 has resulted in canceled events and income for many people in our community - and left everyone with limited resources to maintain economic stability. We believe in the power of community action and mutual generosity to support each other in times of need, and we want to do our part to help artists whose income has been directly affected by this global health crisis.

How it will work:
If you are an artist whose income has been directly affected by the COVID-19 virus, and need immediate (one-time) financial assistance, please fill out the form linked below. This is only to validate your identity - we will not base distributions on quantifiable measures such as popularity, income, etc. We will contact all qualifying individuals to distribute a one-time $250 donation on a first-come-first-served basis, limited only by the amount of funds we can raise.

ARTISTS PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM:

https://forms.gle/iQ8XhJSrykYbsdH88

We encourage all artists who need assistance to apply, and ask anyone with the means to please help in any capacity you can.

This fund raise is based on trust. Please fill out the form below so we know who you are and can contact you directly. 

Money raised will be directed to a dedicated bank account and all Also Cool Magazine members (Malaika , Zoe , Sophia , Maya ) will be responsible for the management and distribution of funds. 

Additional Info:
1) Also Cool Magazine is not benefiting from this fundraiser - all contributions will be distributed to artists in need, no percentage of funds raised will go to Also Cool, a dedicated bank account has been set up to manage donations.

2) This fundraiser has no time or collection limit - we hope to keep going until the artist community gains some stability.

3) If you have any questions or would like to collaborate with us, please contact us through this link . 


Lastly, please SHARE, POST, and DONATE in any capacity you can!

Love,
Also Cool <3
