Chicago Musicians Emergency Relief Fund

Performing artists have had their employment canceled suddenly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and are experiencing extraordinary financial hardship.  Music is a fundamental joy of life.  Behind every one of your favorite songs are the professionals who have dedicated their lives for that moment of creation.  Please help us support the unsung heroes of the concert-houses, theatres, and airwaves.  They can't wait to get back to making music, and they need your help while our nation endures this unprecedented national emergency.  Thank you.

CFM Website

All proceeds will benefit members of the Chicago Federation of Musicians, Local 10-208 of the American Federation of Musicians.  100% of your donations will be disbursed to musicians who have suffered financial losses and applied for relief.  All recipients must be members in good standing.   Applications for relief are located on the CFM website and will be reviewed by the Chicago Federation of Musicians Board of Directors.  Checks will be mailed to recipients immediately thereafter.  BJ Levy is the Secretary-Treasurer of the Chicago Federation of Musicians.  This campaign is a directive from President Terryl Jares, Vice-President Leo Murphy and the entire Board of Directors of the CFM. 

Here is a link to the aid application.  Thank you!!!!!
