Musicians Lifeline, Inc. was organized to provide assistance to New England region music industry professionals who are struggling to maintain their livelihood because of illness, disability, age, or unemployment.
Musicians Lifeline, Inc. also seeks to educate the public on the importance of musicians in our community and the struggles they sometimes face to make ends meet.
Your donations will help to pay for medical expenses, housing, food, utilities and other expenses such as program services and counseling.
How We Started
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to help someone in need get medical attention, early on, before it was too late to count? A “rainy day fund” to pay for an early consultation, or test, or cover the rent while someone makes that recovery?
Raising the money in advance of need is how this all started in 2010, when the Southern New England Musicians Fund, Inc. was founded, with the goal of providing
"Benefits For Those Without Benefits". The Organization’s name defined our primary area of focus upon musicians who were struggling with health related problems, without medical benefits or disability insurance.
In October of 2014, with the adoption of by-laws and a name change to Musicians Lifeline, Inc., the Organization was granted IRS 501 (C) (3) status. We believe that great things are possible for those we help, because of our new IRS status.
