Fund for Nectar & High Dive Staff

Dear Nectar and High Dive friends and Fremonsters,

As you may know, in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus, music venues were one of the first businesses hit with immediate closures.  Although dedicated to doing our part to help the greater whole, we were deeply saddened to close our doors on March 12 - canceling the long-planned shows that bring us together in unity while simultaneously eliminating the income of our hardworking Nectar and High Dive families.  

We are now coming into our second week of closures with an unknown timeline of when we will reopen. But we will reopen!  In the meantime, we are asking for the community's help in supporting our hard-working booking agents, bar managers, bartenders, bar backs, security, production team, sound engineers and janitorial staff - many who rely on tips as their main income.  Our dedicated Nectar and High Dive families work hard to help bring live music to our community - raising the vibration for all. At this time we ask you to help lift them up by contributing toward their fund in whatever amount feels right to you, understanding that many are in a time of need right now. 

All funds raised will be 100% dedicated toward supporting the salaries and supplemental resources for our amazing 45 staff members. We are working diligently to support our staff with paid sick leave and unemployment benefits but this fund will help with immediate needs - paying rent, utilities, food.  Our staff is our family and you are our community - we'd be forever grateful for your support in any way and look forward to celebrating music with you all in the future! 

Donations in any amount will be received with much love and gratitude and every person who donates $5+ will receive an invitation to our re-opening celebration party. (date tbd)
