Project Sponsorship

In pursuit of our mission to illuminate the threads between musical worlds and introduce listeners to new music, Equal Sound is piloting a program to offer fiscal sponsorship to projects seeking to raise money.

To put it simply, we want to help musicians create what musicians want to create. We have 501(c)3 status, and most artists trying to fund an album or a tour or a production don't.

It's pretty easy for us to collect and distribute donations to artists and make it all tax-deductible for donors, so we figured we should. And with our extremely low overhead we can take fees as low as 2% to cover our administrative costs.

If you are have a project and would like to discuss sponsorship possibilities, please contact

The Equal Sound Corona Relief Fund was set up on short notice to provide direct financial assistance to musicians who have lost work as a result of Corona-related event cancellations. We're figuring this one out as we go.
