The Mazatlan Musician’s Emergency Relief Fund is designed to help those musicians from the Mazatlán community who have been economically affected by the cancellation of their concerts by COVID-19 and/or by the loss of their jobs overnight.
100% of these funds will go to artists who have lost income due to cancellations and work stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This emergency funding will help musicians in need with rent, food, utilities, and medical needs and thus survive this emergency. Each individual may request funds for up to $ 6,000.00 pesos ($230 USD). If funds allow and the contingency is extended, reapplications wil be considered.
Thanks to you, the Fund has already distributed more than $1,700 USD as emergency grants that have helped more than 40 people including musicians in Mazatlán and their children:
