Make a donation to the annual fund

The Annual Fund enables Caffè Lena to go beyond great shows.

The Annual Fund is always open for business. We end each year with an Annual Fund Drive, but your unrestricted, fully tax-deductible support is always needed.

Your tax deductible gift creates Music, Connection & Learning.

  • You enable an extraordinary & diverse performance schedule that fills the stage seven nights a week.
  • You are building a high-quality,  artist-friendly platform for livestreaming called CaffeLena.tv.
  • You provide musical outreach to elders, school children and vulnerable community members through a unique offering called “Caffè Lena On the Road.”
  • You pass the folk tradition to the next generation via the Caffè Lena School of Music.
  • You nurture a creative community by supporting a rich array of free & low-cost Open Stage and educational events. Our weekly Open Mic is alcohol-free, kid-friendly and officially the Best in the Capital Region!

We welcome gifts of stocks. If you donate stocks, please let us know about your gift in advance so that we can properly credit you for your donation. Contact Sarah Craig, sarah@caffelena.org, or 518-583-0022.

Thank you for providing Music, Connection and Learning from a legendary stage with your unrestricted gift to Caffè Lena’s Annual Fund!
