The Twin Cities Musicians Union Welfare Fund is a resource for TCMU members established to assist those members whose financial circumstances make it challenging to pay their annual Local and Federation per capita dues. It is intended to supplement other music industry sources, including the AFM Lester Petrillo Fund which provides financial assistance for musicians who due to health or disability have lost significant income from music employment, and AFL-CIO Working Partners which provides assistance to musicians who through personal circumstances are unable to pay their mortgage, utilities, rent, medical expenses or other basic needs, and numerous other industry resources and programs.

Please contact the TCMU office to inquire further about this fund.
