While commemorating the life and legacy of Steve Reid, the Steve Reid Foundation aims to help people working in music who are in crisis, especially those suffering from illness. We also seek to support emerging new talent through education and information initiatives. We want to see a world where people working in music, especially those who have devoted their lives to it, are able to get the help they need when they need it most. The Foundation provides grants to non-profit organisations that help people working in music. Charities that we are currently working closely with include the Musicians Benevolent Fund and the Jazz Foundation of America.
