Since the onset of the Covid-1 pandemic epidemic, Spotify has been discussing with various industry partners how we can support artists and the creative community who have been deeply affected by the virus. Although streaming creators continue to play a key role in connecting with their fans, many more sources of revenue have been disrupted or completely shut down due to this crisis.
Spotify Covid-1 Music Relief
This year we have launched Spotify Covid-1 Music Relief Project, Which recommends certified companies that provide financial relief for music communities around the world.
Spotify has partnered with 20 companies around the world:
Spotify has given these organizations a grant – and our dollar-for-page grant – a total of 10 million.
If you have a professional need in the music industry, we encourage you to visit our partners site for information on applying for relief.
We’ve also introduced a new Spotify feature for artists: Artist Fundraising. As artists can select any part of the music to highlight as an artist selection in their profile, they can now highlight a fundraising destination (in addition to their artist selection).
First and foremost, this feature enables artists who are interested in raising money to support themselves, their bands or their crew, to get the word out to their fans on their Spotify artist profile. We have a strong group of early fundraising partners: artists can choose to add a link to the Cash app, GoFundMe and PayPal.me.
We have also created fundraising options for artists to raise funds for an initiative to help those most affected in the music industry. Artists can choose from any of the aforementioned verified companies participating in the Spotify Kovid-1 Music Relief project.

We’ll share additional details and updates with us as soon as possible. To learn more about Covid-1’s address, platform, and Spotify’s extensive efforts to shut down, please visit For the record.
