The Jeremy Wilson Foundation is dedicated to providing emergency healthcare assistance and improving the overall well-being of individual musicians and their families. Find out more at http://thejwf.org.
There is an absence of relief organizations that assist working musicians who, as members of the creative class, are often at high risk of serious financial harm in times of medical crisis. Due to a lack of fundamental financial security, stability, and a professional business structure, many artists simply cannot afford basic health insurance. Musicians are considered self-employed and do not receive employee benefits from the record companies they serve or from the clubs and venues they support and are twice as likely as the general public to be uninsured.*
