How To Help
With so many musicians, venues, staff being hard hit by this crisis, I thought it would be helpful to build a single place for people to help. If you or your organization would like to be included, just send me the details.
Martyrs - Go Fund Me - Goal $10,000
Any amount you can give will divided among all of our staff: sound engineers, doormen, bartenders, waitstaff, barbacks, cooks & cleaning crew.
Old Town School - Goal $30,000
100% of these proceeds will create a staff and faculty assistance program.
SPACE will match all donations up to $10k, and we’ve put together some awesome incentives to help make it even easier to chip in a few bucks. -$50 donations receive a SPACE T-shirt -$75 donations receive a SPACE Sweatshirt
If you would like to help our beloved and charming staff weather this storm, please "tip" the staff if you like at this on-line "Virtual Tavern.
Chicago Artists Relief Fund - Goal $50,000
This fund was created by Chicago-area artists in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to support our colleagues in the greater Chicago arts community who are experiencing financial repercussions due to pandemic-related cancellations.
Priority will be given to BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and People of Color] artists, transgender & nonbinary & queer artists, and disabled artists - but we aim to help as many Chicago-area artists in need as possible. Our ability to do that will depend on how much we can raise.
