Caffe Lena has not always been a non-profit. Though Lena was not interested in sharing control of her coffeehouse with a Board of Directors, she ran it with no eye toward profit and was famously generous with her performers. She was helped by numerous volunteers, and it was those folks who filed the 501(c)3 paperwork and kept the place going when she passed away suddenly in 1989. These days, your membership has allowed the venue to expand on Lena’s mission, becoming a center for music education, a place where you can hear the stories of challenge and triumph unfolding all around us & of course an unparalleled stage for live music. Thank you!
Caffe Lena has nearly 1,000 active members. These folks are planting songs and growing community with their annual donations. They also get the best seats in the house, early access to special shows and some neat swag. Learn More
