The CCMA Foundation’s vision is to change lives through the power of music. With the support of the music community, artists, partners and fans, the foundation works to meet this vision through three pillars: music for change, music for healing and music for youth.

With a focus on maintaining the health and welfare of our music community during these trying times, the CCMA Foundation is raising much needed funds for the Unison Benevolent Fund, a Canadian charitable organization whose mission is to help provide emergency relief services to the Canadian music community especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Unison Benevolent Fund is an assistance program – created and administered for the music community, by the music community – designed to provide discreet relief to music industry professionals in times of crisis. There are two distinct types of support available through the fund. Financial Assistance and Counselling and Health Solutions supported by RBC Foundation.

Now more than ever, Unison’s emergency relief assistance is a critical safety-net for members of our industry deeply affected by the COVID-19 virus itself and the precautions and protocols surrounding it. Please help us as we prepare to support the most vulnerable during this time by
making a donation to Unison.

For every donation made at and through the CCMA Foundation , Spotify will match it dollar for dollar, up to a collective total of 10 million USD. Visit to learn more
