Midwest Music Foundation’s Spring Donation Drive was a huge success, with more than $20,000 raised! Thank you for supporting Kansas City’s musical artists and workers with essential COVID-19 relief and health care grants. Since last year, we’ve been able to give out $122,000 in COVID relief grants!

Thanks so much to Tito’s Handmade Vodka for their tremendous support of the Midwest Music Foundation Donation Drive 2021!
