Apply for Help.

Thanks for your interest in applying to the Lost & Foundation for assistance.  We are musicians dedicated to volunteering energy and talents to raise funds for people in need.  The Lost & Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works through the power of music to help others.

Please understand that we do only a couple of major benefit events each year and can help only a small number of people.  While we don’t have resources to cover all situations, we can often bring some relief to the right situation.  Also, we have a small grants program for specific needs, such as help with rent while undergoing therapy, travel expenses to get to medical care, smaller medical bills, and so on.

Another way we can help is offering our experience and guidance in event planning.  We’re happy to sit down with people who want to put on a benefit or other fund-raising event and help them succeed.  We can also provide some information on dealing with funds with regard to taxable income to the beneficiary.

Please help us determine how we might help by giving us some information.  Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  We might be able to help directly or give guidance to other help.  Either way, please take heart and comfort that you live in a caring world filled with the joy that the power of music can bring.

3. Please tell us how much assistance you need or your estimate of how much the costs will be, such as “Gas is $3.97 and it’s 627 miles to Seattle so I will need $226 for the trip over and back.”
