Our Charity Partner:
What we do for charity
We receive a commission for some purchases made through our website.
We donate 10% of profits to help other musicians, and invest the rest to create new tools and content.
Why we help
The purpose of musicmanta is to "save musicians more money". We are musicians ourselves, and know how difficult it is for most musicians to live from their profession.
That's why we want to share any gains that musicmanta makes with other musicians who are having a tough time. Whether their struggles are with their physical or mental health, or financially, we want to help ease some of those concerns.
We decided to partner with Help Musicians, an independent UK charity helping professional musicians.
How Help Musicians helps
Help Musicians is a charity that loves music. For 100 years, they have been working hard to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians across the UK.
They want to create a world where musicians thrive. A musicians’ life can be precarious, with ups and downs throughout a career. Opportunities must be hard-won, whilst challenges come along all too easily, with unsteady income and physical and mental health concerns common issues to navigate. In addition, training can take many years, and, along with investing in instruments and other equipment, puts up financial barriers to creative progression.
Help Musicians offers a wide range of help to support music creators in times of crisis and opportunity - ensuring musicians across the UK can achieve their creative potential and sustain a career in music. Sadly, the impact of the pandemic means the charity is needed more than ever. Last year, Help Musicians was able to provide financial hardship support to over 19,000 music creators and increase access to our mental health services by 40%.
