ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund

Raised-To Date:

$3.8 Million


To say that I am grateful is an understatement. Having those funds available will be huge in helping my family navigate the scary and unprecedented situation that we are all now facing.

ACM Lifting Lives has made a world of difference for our family.

I'm so grateful. Everything helps in these trying times. I wish the same health and safety to you and those at the ACM who have clearly worked hard to be of assistance.

I received the check yesterday and I can't begin to tell you the impact and difference it made. Words cannot express my gratitude and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

I just wanted to say thank you. It really means a lot that people/organizations like this are looking out for the people in the business like me. Stay safe and much love!

Thanks so much for your quick turnaround time in these hard times, it means a huge amount to the musicians you are helping as I'm sure you're aware of. Thank you so much once again, stay safe!

This really helps- I can't help but think about all of the gigs I'm having to miss out on. But this definitely helps. Very much appreciated. Looking forward to getting back out there and making some music.

ACM Lifting Lives has responded quickly and effectively to the growing needs in the Country Music Industry due to the coronavirus by creating the ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund.

This fund helps to alleviate the burden that many of the behind-the-scenes professionals such as touring personnel and musicians, songwriters and developing artists are facing. When funding is available, ACM Lifting Lives gets back to applicants with approval decisions and checks are mailed out within a matter of days. The impact on these individuals is life changing.

If you are part of the country music industry and have been affected by COVID-19, you may qualify for assistance. Please download the application here and email your completed application to [email protected].

The effects of COVID-19 have many living in a state of uncertainty and we hope to continue getting funding to those who are in desperate need. If you are in a position to contribute to this fund, we invite you to donate or contact us.
