Spotify has launched a new initiative to support members of the music community with the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project.
Via a web page, Spotify will recommend verified organizations that offer financial relief to those in the music community most in need. Spotify will match dollar-for-dollar public donations, up to a total Spotify contribution of $10 million.
The music streaming platform, which had about 124 million paid subscribers, also partnered with non-profit organizations such as MusiCares and Help Musicians, a UK-based charity for musicians, it said in a statement.
The company said it was also working on a separate feature to help musicians raise funds directly from fans either for themselves or for other artists.
