Thanks to your voice, Congress has included the Save Our Stages Act in the recently passed stimulus bill, and thanks to your generosity the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund has distributed more than $3M to more than 150 vulnerable independent venues and promoters. We could not have done this without you. Thank you!

Unfortunately, Federal funds have not yet reached venues, and in the meantime there are hundreds of venues and promoters at immediate risk of permanent closure before they receive government aid. If you can, please consider making a donation to help these venues and promoters. To fulfill all outstanding requests, an additional $11 million would be required.

Your continued support of NIVA and the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund will help keep independent venues and promoters in business long enough to receive Federal funding, and secure the future of our independent community for years to come.

Please consider donating to the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, or supporting NIVA directly through our merchandise store.


The fund is administered by The Giving Back Fund; a separate 501(c)3 non-profit that will collect the money and oversee the application process for venues to receive grants from the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund.
