Individual Giving

Freight & Salvage at Night

2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Freight & Salvage and we have lots to celebrate – a beautiful home in downtown Berkeley, a large and growing number of ticket buyers, and an incredible line-up of concerts on our stage! We also have ambitious fundraising goals to support the continued growth and strength of the Freight.

Your generous contributions during our 50th Anniversary Campaign will help us Play It Forward as we work together to keep traditional music thriving. Funds from this campaign will provide seed funding for expanded education programs, improvements to our lobby, and deepening our engagement with the community. Celebrate fifty years at the Freight & Salvage by becoming a Friend of the Freight today!
