RAINEY DAY FUND
Supporting BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and disabled artists in roots music.
Pursuing a career in music is a difficult undertaking even in the best of circumstances and, as in life itself, marginalized artists have far from the best of circumstances. To help achieve a better balance of powers, through programs including a micro-grant fund with cash gifts of up to $1,000 and a suite of donated professional services, the Rainey Day Fund provides assistance to BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled artists, and others who add to the rich fabric of roots music.
Our first offshoot initiative, the Color Me Country Artist Fund, supports the underrepresented voices of BIPOC artists in country music that, for too long, have lived outside the spotlight and off the airwaves. Additionally, the new Rosetta Fund provides support to journalists and other creators with marginalized identities working within the roots/country music space.
