« 16th Anniversary »
High Zero is an entirely volunteer-organized cultural event which seriously needs your support if it is to continue. The festival operates from a mix of individual donations, door receipts, a great deal of donated labor and equipment, limited program advertsing, and a small amount of funding, as it is made available from private foundations. The festival has considerable expenses, including significant transportation for musicians, fees, space rental, and publicity. The festival is also unusual in that it pays ALL the musicians extremely equitably, and again, there are no salaries for the organizers. It is a true labor of love. The Festival is organized by The High Zero Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so your contributions are tax-deductable.
We consider the festival to be a totally unusual and inspiring cultural event for Baltimore--both a disruptive and a generative force. HELP US CONTINUE IT!

This year, the festival has the following ultra-serious support categories:
To donate please click the DONATE button to the right of the category you would like to support. This button will take you to a PayPal based donation website that can accept contributions from all major credit cards and/or from your personal PayPal account. Please note that the donation form asks for a shipping address. We require your mailing address (and your name) in order to send your tax-deductable receipt following your donation.
If you believe in this kind of freewheeling, risk-taking, mind-expanding culture at all, it will be money very well-spent!
If you would prefer to send your donation by check, please send your donation as a check made payable to:
