We Don’t Give as much as We’d Like to

We don’t give as much as we’d like to. Our maximum is six thousand dollars. There are some instances where artists are raising sixty, seventy thousand dollars through a crowdfunding campaign. So, while we are able to help, it’s still just a portion of what they would need to recover. Our assistance certainly helps, but it’s also not enough.
