Atlanta Musicians Emergency Relief Fund (AMERF)
AMERF exists in order to provide emergency aid to deserving professional musicians from among Atlanta’s musical community. The idea took root when the organizers of Atlanta’s 40-year tradition, the Inman Park Festival, agreed to let us solicit donations at the Festival in May, 2016. Those funds have enabled us to become a 501c3 non-profit corporation, and our ongoing purposes align with our Mission Statement.
Create fund-raising opportunities and solicit donations in order to maintain a cash deposit reserve to be used for donations to musicians or to like-minded organizations.
Research and catalog a database of medical/financial/legal resources for use by individual musicians.
Continue to support live music and all those people who help make it.
Believe that music makes the world a better place.
Rely on volunteers and support from working musicians to keep us going.
Support and facilitate musical education for young Atlantans.
