The ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund has already raised over $1 million dollars to help individuals in the country music community who are experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic, and as of April 10, ACM Lifting Lives has already granted $970,000 of the fund, which was only launched last week, giving an average of $138,000 per day.
The fund is helping to alleviate the burden that many behind-the-scenes professionals such as touring personnel and musicians, songwriters and developing artists are facing as the industry has been hit hard with canceled tours, shows, job losses and reduced work opportunities, venue closures, and corporate furloughs. ACM Lifting Lives is currently getting back to people with approvals and checks mailed out within a matter of days.
To continue providing critical support to the country music community, the ACM is asking for help to raise awareness and additional funds for the COVID-19 Response Fund and as a sign of their commitment to the cause, ACM Lifting Lives will match up to an additional $250,000 of incoming gifts. ACM and ACM Lifting Lives will recognize those gifts on its website, its social platforms, and via e-mail communication to members and fans.
