Helping our Fellow Musicians in Time of Crisis

Musicians can be the most vulnerable people in the world when health crises occur. Even a short illness can cost a musician critical income beyond the actual costs of health care. Many Local 72-147 musicians have benefited from assistance from the Bill Collins Benefit Fund at just these difficult times.

If you know of one of our members who is struggling with a disability crisis, call the union office and let us know. If you wish to make a specific donation for a member in need, we will be pleased to honor that as well.

The Fund was begun by Bill Collins III in memory of his Dad, member Bill Collins, Jr., to aid sick, injured and disabled Union members in financial distress. Please consider making a donation to the Bill Collins Fund to enable Local 72-147 to help its members in crisis. Send your check to the Union office payable in any amount to the Bill Collins Benefit Fund.

Help us help your colleagues in a meaningful way.
