Since its formation, the Grammy-affiliated charity MusiCares has worked to provide resources to professionals throughout the music industry in their times of need. The organization has developed a safety net that is capable of providing support in cases of medical, financial, and personal catastrophe. To accomplish this, MusiCares has developed an extensive network of affiliated medical centers, addiction treatment programs, and other crisis groups.
Additionally, the charity works to direct the resources and attention of the music community toward health and welfare issues such as the Hurricane Sandy relief effort, the war on drugs, and blood drives. MusiCares is partnered with a variety of sponsors and organizations, such as Baldwin Pianos, the Actor’s Fund, the Gibson Foundation, Guitar Center, and Van’s Warped Tour.
