Support the BBCLP

Your support is what makes it work!

The community that’s grown up around Bird & Beckett has been a delight to be part of.  Glen Park has been hugely supportive of the bookshop and our programs.  As individuals, you’ve helped by buying books, of course– and also by coming to the shows and underwriting the cost of putting them on.

For many years now, this community has been providing a sweet venue, a welcoming and appreciative environment and generous monetary support to writers, musicians and other performing artists by way of Bird & Beckett.  We can all be very proud of that fact!

Friends of the bookshop helped us establish a 501(c)3 nonprofit several years ago — the “Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project” — which is charged with accomplishing the cultural programming that we do.  And individuals can take a full tax deduction for any direct contributions they make to the organization.

Between the individual donations you make, the money folks put in the “kitty” at the shows and a few small grants, we’ve been able to fund an ambitious schedule of programs.  That money also helps defray the rent on the shop and pays for some advertising and publicity.  All told, the establishment and funding of the nonprofit has been a boon to us and to the community.

If you see the value in what we’re doing, and can see your way clear to invest in our efforts, please send a check made out to the “BBCLP” or use the donate button on the upper left side of this page to donate by credit card.

With your help, we’ll continue to bring fine writers, musicians and other performing artists into the shop so that they can connect directly with you in the intimate neighborhood venue that is Bird & Beckett.

We want you to consider the shop an extension of your living room.   Invite your friends to share the experience and let us help you entertain them!

Thanks for supporting our efforts– and, especially, thanks for supporting the living culture that makes San Francisco such a special city to live in.
