ConvertKit has established a $50,000 fund to help creators in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please read details below and then submit your information if you are in need.

What types of expenses are covered?

If you're already in a tight spot, unexpected expenses could really cause a problem. With that in mind we've made the creator fund flexible. It can be used toward medical expenses, childcare, groceries, or your rent or mortgage.

How much will you cover?

We've established a $50,000 fund to cover up to $500 per creator. We chose this amount for two reasons:

It allows us to help at least 100 creators.

We're able to stay under the tax requirements of sending a 1099 or similar paperwork, which would make this far more complicated.

​We'll use our discretion to decide who to allocate funds to. We know we won't be able to get to everyone before the pool runs out, but we hope this makes a difference for at least 100 people!
