Donate to musicians who have been affected by the COVID-19 virus and/or Wildfires

Many members have lost their income from playing and teaching. They run the risk of losing their homes or healthcare due to their inability to pay. If you have the means to help, please consider donating here. Your donations are not tax-deductible but they will be held in a special fund allocated to our members in need. Thank you for your generosity.
