Music Maker Relief Foundation Mission:

Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the true pioneers and forgotten heroes of Southern musical traditions gain recognition and meet their day to day needs. Today, many such musicians are living in extreme poverty and need food, shelter, medical care, and other assistance. Music Maker's aid and service programs improve the quality of recipients lives. Our work affirms to these artists that we value the gifts of music and inspiration they have delivered to the world. Our mission is to give back to the roots of American music.

Our criterion for recipients is they be rooted in a Southern musical tradition, be 55 years or older and have an annual income less than $18,000.

Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. is a tax exempt, public charity under IRS code 501(c)3.

The natural venues for many traditional musical artists have evaporated in our increasingly homogenous, media dominated culture. With no place to perform these musicians are without an audience and have no means of making a living through their art. The purpose of M.M.R.F. Inc. is to provide these artists what they need to make music. We strive to accomplish this goal through financial assistance and advocacy programs.
