The PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund has been helping songwriters and composers in crisis due to illness, disability, older age- related and financial difficulties for 78 years.
Since 1977 when Marc Bolan tragically died, a share of his song royalties has been paid to the PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund, enabling his music legacy to assist and inspire thousands of other songwriters.
