Support The Musical Offering COVID-19 Relief Fund

Dear Friends of The Musical Offering, This has been a very unsettling and challenging time for everyone.  Small businesses such as ours have been hit especially hard during this time. While we have been working hard to remain open to provide the community with food and beverages available for pick-up and delivery through services, we are struggling in this crisis. Since 1978, we have been so honored to be received as a valued member of the Berkeley community as a place to gather, eat, drink, and be moved by live and recorded classical music. As you can imagine, we have never faced anything like this in our decades of existence, and the service industry does not operate on margins that allow for a business to weather an extended shutdown or loss of customers. We would be incredibly grateful if any of our customers could contribute any funds, no matter how small, to help us survive during this difficult time. 100% of contributions will go directly to keeping the business solvent and able to both provide for customers and in turn pay employees; this means rent, bills, supplies, and wages that will allow the cafe to stay open and our employees to be paid. The smallest contribution may not seem significant to you but every dollar will be critical to us. We can't wait to open our doors fully in the future and have people once again come to enjoy the place that has brought joy to so many for over 40 years.  With love and gratitude, The Musical Offering
