Help The Blues Foundation preserve Blues heritage, celebrate Blues music, and ensure the future of this uniquely American art form.

Proceeds from the fundraising effort will help support the many activities of The Blues Foundation. The HART FUND offers financial support to musicians in need of medical, dental and vision care, and to the families of Blues musicians to ensure their loved ones have a dignified funeral at the end of life. This has now been expanded to allow a full complement of health screenings at major Blues Foundation events and other music conferences and festivals. The Blues Foundation also created the COVID-19 Blues Musician Emergency Relief Fund, recently assisting close to 100 musicians with Payments toward rent/mortgage, utilities, home bills, internet access, and more.

The Blues Foundation also conducts educational outreach by providing tuition to youth performers to attend summer blues camps and workshops through Generation Blues scholarships; and by offering information and support to Blues societies, festivals and school systems via the Blues in the Schools network.
