Individual Giving

Freight & Salvage at Night


In recognition of our 50th Anniversary, the Freight has embarked on an ambitious fundraising campaign to raise $2.2 million by year-end, to support expanded education programs, deepening community engagement, and capital improvements, and we need your help.

Our friend, Ed Littlefield, will match every dollar you donate up to $200,000, from now through December 31st. With your help we can raise $400,000 together.

Our campaign theme is Play it Forward, which means making music matter! Because whatever
live music we play, listen to, or support; wherever it came from; however old it is; it always speaks to the present, and always helps create the future. Playing it Forward is about celebrating traditional music; making music that helps us to know who we really are, and what we want to become.

Please make a gift today!
