The CCMA Foundation’s vision is to change lives through the power of music. With the support of the music community, artists, partners and fans, the foundation works to meet this vision through three pillars: music for change, music for healing and music for youth.

With a focus on maintaining the health and welfare of our music community during these trying times, the CCMA Foundation and Canada Together: In Concert will be raising much needed funds for two (2) Canadian charitable organizations whose mission is to help those in need across the country, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. These organizations are:

Food Banks Canada provides national leadership to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow in collaboration with the food bank network from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

For 40 years, food banks have been dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity. Over 3,000 food banks and community agencies come together to serve our most vulnerable neighbours who – last year – made 1.1 million visits to these organizations in one month alone, according to our HungerCount report. Over the past 10 years, as a system we’ve sourced and shared over 1.4 billion pounds of food and Food Banks Canada shared nearly $70 million in funding to help maximize collective impact and strengthen local capacity – while advocating for reducing the need for food banks.

Our vision is clear: create a Canada where no one goes hungry. Visit to learn more.

The Unison Benevolent Fund is an assistance program – created and administered for the music community, by the music community – designed to provide discreet relief to music industry professionals in times of crisis. There are two distinct types of support available through the fund. Financial Assistance and Counselling and Health Solutions supported by RBC Foundation.

Now more than ever, Unison’s emergency relief assistance is a critical safety-net for members of our industry deeply affected by the COVID-19 virus itself and the precautions and protocols surrounding it. Please help us as we prepare to support the most vulnerable during this time by
making a donation to Unison.

For every donation made at and through the CCMA Foundation , Spotify will match it dollar for dollar, up to a collective total of 10 million USD. Visit to learn more
