FA is a volunteer grassroots effort created by Donald Cohen, a long time activist with decades of experience supporting the rights of all workers to earn a living wage and have a voice on the job. He is the co-founder of the Rainey Day Fund that provides assistance to BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled artists, and others who add to the rich fabric of roots music. He has written about the importance of artists in protecting and advancing the common good and how fans can support artists in the age of streaming.

He is the Executive Director of In the Public Interest, a national research and policy center focused on public good and democracy. 

Of course, all musicians are music fans!

We will support artist led, or supported initiatives and campaigns. Fan Alliance will partner with artist advocacy organizations such as the Artists Rights Alliance and the Music Workers Alliance that represent artists directly facing these issues and working on solutions to create a sustainable ecosystem 

FA is a project of Common Good, Inc. a U.S. based non-profit created to support diverse musicians and artists.

Fan Alliance is a grassroots, volunteer effort.  We only need minimal funds for website hosting, list maintenance and technical support. Any additional funds received will be donated to artist granting organizations or artist led advocacy organizations. We may occasionally share info about funding appeals from important artist-led efforts.

Nope, neither. No fundraising emails (if you want to support music financially, give a donation, buy merch, buy tickets or become an ongoing Patreon subscriber to one – or more – of your favorite independent artists.)

Sign the pledge!

Join us and support a music community that works for fans and artists alike.
