Supporting Early Musicians in Need

Update 2/14/22: Thank you to our generous donors! The Relief Fund reached dour $10,000 goal for this third round of grants. All funds have been exhausted based on applications we received earlier in the month, and the application for assistance has been closed. If you applied on February 1 and are not otherwise notified soon, your application may still be under consideration.


The current global health crisis continues to have a severe impact on arts and culture. The rapid spread of the latest Covid variant has caused yet another wave of cancellations, with the result that many musicians are suffering severe financial stress.

We know we don’t have the resources to help everyone and that the EMA Relief Fund can’t make up for months of lost performance income. But we can do something, and with these mini-grants we can set an example of community spirit and provide some hope in this time of unprecedented challenge to livelihoods, artistic expression, and security. This page is where early musicians apply for a mini grant and where those with the means can contribute to the fund.

EMA and Gotham Early Music Scene have partnered to promote this fund, through which early musicians will receive, on a first-come, first-served basis, a check for $250, as long as funds allow.
