Support Zimfest

There are many ways to support Zimfest. You can become a member, you can volunteer, and you can make a donation. Many people do all three!

Zimfest 2019 Fundraising Drive

Help us keep Zimfest and the celebration of Zimbabwean culture strong and active into the future. Donate in the Zimfest 2019 Fundraising Drive. This year, we are aiming to raise funds for the cost of: transportation, room and board for the group of talented Zimbabwean teachers; and purchasing marimbas to augment the supply of instruments at the festival. Setting up a monthly recurring donation is easy to do and a relatively new option for us.

Some fun ideas for raising funds in support of Zimfest include hosting events in your local community — benefit concerts, dance parties, fundraising dinners and silent auctions. Share your events on the Zimfest Facebook Page so that we can see all the exciting events that are being planned to support Zimfest 2019. For more ideas, see the Letter From the Zimfest Board and this blog post.

If you would like your gift to be In Memory of someone, enter their name in the “Note to seller” section on PayPal. (If you already donated this year and want to add a name, send us a message.) We will create an In Memoriam here on this web page.
