CONNECTED BY MUSIC.
Freaks Action Network harnesses the power, energy and creativity of live music to generate resources and provide tangible support to those in need in our community and beyond. We share our strengths and love of music to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Love Music? So Do We!
The NYC Freaks is a community of live music fans formed in 2000. Over the years, the Freaks have cultivated a philanthropic spirit, raising thousands of dollars through concerts, auctions and other endeavors with the goal to give back to the community that has provided so much joy to us.
Along the way, we discovered that the existing safety net does not always completely cover those in need in our live music community. We realized we could be doing more to give back. In that spirit, we created the Freaks Action Network, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity.
FAN Support Funds
The Freaks Action Network (FAN) was created to turn the positive energy of live music into positive change in the world. Past initiatives have supported causes like music education, cancer research, and hunger relief.
The COVID-19 pandemic turned the world upside down and the live music world needed help. In response to the hardship caused by COVID-19, we created the FAN Musicians Relief Fund and the Live Music Production Support Fund to assist professional musicians and production staff and help make up for lost gigs and income by providing one-time grants of $400 to eligible applicants.
