Many initiatives are put in place by organizers with a big heart and Sabam is not to be outdone. This is why we want to be transparent with you about our donation procedure.
Sabam cannot grant exemptions or reductions on royalties. There is no profit motive for this, because Sabam is a non-profit organization. It is motivated by the fact that Sabam cannot freely dispose of the royalties of its members.
Indeed, Belgian and foreign authors and composers entrust us with the management of their royalties. This means that when their music is used, these authors count on Sabam to receive remuneration to this end.
Of course, some humanitarian, philanthropic or social initiatives do not leave authors, composers and publishers indifferent. For this reason, Sabam, on behalf of the members it represents, supports through donations various actions throughout the country such as Télévie, de Warmste Week, Rode Neuzen Dag, Music For Live and various smaller initiatives.
By granting these donations, authors receive what they are entitled to and Sabam contributes to the good cause.
We would like to wish every organizer of charitable events as well as the development of their projects every success.
