Keep the music alive at Caffè Lena.

Campaign for Caffè Lena

Through diligent stewardship and steady artistic leadership, Caffè Lena has evolved from humble beginnings to become one of the most important music venues in the country. There is much inspiration and satisfaction to be found in this 50-year story. With your help, this important cultural institution will continue to preserve American music traditions, foster creativity, and nourish the community for many years into the future.


Membership dues provide a crucial portion of Caffè Lena’s annual operating budget. These funds represent our community’s commitment to keeping this venerable coffeehouse going strong. In return, we enjoy giving back not just a vibrant and healthy folk club, but year ‘round discounts on tickets, plus perks such as complimentary passes, depending on your level of support.

Annual Fund

By contributing to Caffè Lena’s Annual Fund, you allow us to support today’s voices in music, poetry, and storytelling, and share them with you each and every week.


Corporate sponsors and partners are an important part of Caffè Lena’s success each year. Thanks to generous businesses, Caffè Lena is empowered to continue presenting the artists you know, and those you are soon to love.
