HELP MUSICIANS IN NEED:
The Mikulas Musicians Fund still has a limited number of $500 emergency grants available to Tucson musicians who depend substantially on playing music for their livelihood, and because of the ongoing Covid-19 health crises need funds to help get them get by right now. If you fit this description, or know of musicians who do, please have them contact this e-mail address, email@example.com. There is a short application process which they will receive when they make their inquiry.
Also, don’t forget the fund was originally set up as an emergency fund for any Tucson musician who cannot play music because of a health issue, so if you fit this description because of personal health reasons other than Covid-19, you may also be eligible for a general health grant.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you fall into these categories or to send this notice to others who may. Tucson musicians are the most generous people on earth, and we need to give back to them as much as possible to keep them going.
If you’d like to donate to the fund and enable more grants for musicians, go to mikulasmusiciansfund.org. There is a donate button and we would gratefully accept anything you can give.
