As a commitment to our professional bluegrass community, the IBMA Trust Fund Board of Trustees has set aside up to $150,000 of current assets for COVID-19 crisis assistance and established an account specifically for COVID-19 Relief. Any funds donated to this new account will be added to the existing funds being committed.
If you have a little, give; if you need a little, ask.
The IBMA Trust Fund was established in 1987 as a means to offer financial assistance to bluegrass music professionals in time of emergency need.
The Trust Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable institution governed by an autonomous five-person board of trustees appointed by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
To date, the IBMA Trust Fund has given over $800,000 in direct aid to professionals in emergency need.
The Fund helps eligible bluegrass professionals who are currently or have previously been significantly involved in the industry. This includes, but is not limited to, artists, composers, broadcasters, media representatives, event producers, agents, educators, managers, and employees of record companies.
All requests and the circumstances surrounding them are held with the utmost confidence.
