Makers COVID-19 Relief Fund
San Diego Made and I Heart Indie Markets are teaming up on a Makers COVID-19 Relief Fund to help maker vendors through this difficult time.
With all events canceled until at least May, these small business owners are struggling to stay afloat, and they need your help. Every dollar raised through our GoFundMe COVID-19 Relief campaign will go directly to help a maker in need.
If you have anything to spare, please donate now. If you want to help us spread the word, please share the GoFundMe large and wide. If you are a maker in need, please share this campaign and apply for funds.
COVID-19 Artist Relief Project
Any artist in any discipline who has been impacted by COVID19-related cancellations and closures may apply for assistance. Stipends and support will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the only limitation being how much money we are able to raise. The only requirements are (1) you demonstrate you’re an artist by sharing your resume and website, where applicable, and (2) you share this fundraiser with your own networks and provide proof of that activity via a screenshot.
