At times of great challenge, music helps to uplift us. But right now, thousands of creative professionals in the music industry need our help.
While streaming still gives artists a way to connect with their fans, so many other sources of revenue have been put on hold by this crisis. To play our part, we’re working with a growing list of organizations offering financial relief to creators around the world to find ways to support our community.
The Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project has been created to amplify the efforts of organizations that focus on helping those most in need, beginning with those listed below. Spotify has made a donation to these organizations and matched donations made via this page dollar for dollar up to a collective total of $10 million. While the project has reached its matching commitment, continued contributions can be made by following the links below.
