What are some ways I can help?
Financial contributions can support a class or workshop, research in the village, rehearsals, or a concert or tour. Donations can go toward a specific project, such as Vadalma's next CD, development of the resources portion of this website, our upcoming stage production, or research on a specific topic (Zina is currently preparing a TED Talk on traditional village lifestyle), or they can go toward ongoing overhead expenses and infrastructure, such as space rental, instrument maintenance, travel expenses, archival work, and administrative work. We currently accept donations via cash, check, and PayPal.
Donated services and volunteering can include hosting a concert or workshop, administrative assistance, Hungarian-English translation (as well as to other languages), technological support such web design or systems development, promotion and PR work, booking, grant-writing, photography, concert management, event staffing, printing services, childcare services, and more.
Donated goods might include airline miles or tickets, a venue for a concert or workshop, or equipment such as a computer, external HD, recording device, video camera, musical instrument, office supplies, traditional Hungarian clothing items, and more. Food and beverage items can also be donated to certain events, depending on the venue, whether for consumption or sale.
