After providing over $100,000 in assistance to local musicians who had lost gigs due to the Spring 2020 shutdown - local nonprofit Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians, Inc. (AMFM) has launched a new initiative to assist musicians whose livelihoods have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund is to provide a significant, one-time benefit to qualifying musicians who have suffered financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.
More information, including eligibility requirements, are posted on the AMFM website. The application will be posted on January 10, 2021, and the deadline for applying for benefits is 11:59 PM on January 31, 2021.
AMFM also plans to continue its youth scholarship and award programs in 2021. Because the organization’s overhead is extremely low, over 94 percent of donations received go directly to musicians
AMFM’s goal is to reciprocate the efforts shown by the hardworking musicians of Annapolis - who are continuously giving back to our community - by ensuring the musicians who work and perform in the Annapolis area can continue to maintain a quality of life during unexpected hardship that will keep them financially viable and the music in the city of Annapolis thriving.
Its no wonder AMGM was named nonprofit of the year by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County !!! Thank you AMFM and all who have suppored them over the past 14 years!
