Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund

Keep cowboy poets, storytellers, and musicians performing!

Jumpstart Our Virtual Events
Every $1 You Give Becomes $3

We are currently producing our first virtual event (a 90-minute online broadcast) featuring three cowboy poets to be streamed later this year. Our Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund will empower us to produce additional top-quality online cowboy poetry events.

An anonymous donor has pledged $10,000 $20,000 to double-match every donation we receive through this Keeping the Tradition Alive Fund up to a total of $5000 $10,000 between now and November 30. So any dollar you give becomes $3! Together, we can raise $15,000 $30,000 to ensure more virtual cowboy poetry events.

Our film crew is traveling to the home ranches of the performers to see the vistas that inspire them, the livestock they raise, and the dust they chew as they work. That takes time, money, and good equipment. But we think you'll love the end result. Won't you pitch in?

PROGRESS AS OF 11/20: Donations totaling $9011 have been received and double-matched, for a total of $27,033. That's 90% of our stretch goal!
Yippee-ki-yay! Thank you!
