The Pinetop Perkins Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide encouragement and support for youth and young people at the beginning of their musical career; and help provide care and safety for elderly musicians at the twilight of theirs. The Pinetop Assistance League (PAL) fulfills the second part of this mission by supporting blues artists who need financial assistance to endure COVID-19 and navigate resources for health and wellness. Priority will be given to blues artists.
