Donations / Money
runs at a loss every year: an average of $1528/year over the period
2002-2006. Although we are 100% volunteer-run (none of the organizers,
performers or workshop
get paid), we
have major expenses. Building rental and publicity are the largest.
We ask for donations to help cover these costs and
to reduce the loss we make - which the SF
Folk Music Club has paid each year. However, the club may be unable
to continue funding our losses.
Please donate what you are able to the yellow cans
around the festival. Donations of $5 or more at the front desk earn you
a button. You may also ask there for a tax-deductible receipt. We are
a 501(c)3 organization, federal tax ID 94-3281922. Checks payable to "San
Francisco Folk Music Club".
Enquire about membership!
Email our Director with any concerns.
(payable to SFFMC) may also be mailed to: Marlene McCall, 432 60th
Street, Oakland, CA 94609. Let us know
your name and address if you want a receipt for tax.
If you can't afford to donate money, we understand!
The festival is free for everybody. We would still welcome a donation
of your time . Thanks!
If you or
your company can donate services the festival could use to reduce our
expenses, that would also be much appreciated!
