To accomplish our promotions and activities, WorldBeat Productions relies heavily on the work of committed volunteers and supporters. We have also received funding from the California Arts Council, COMBO, and the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.
We need volunteers to help distribute flyers, make telephone calls, and do the necessary fundraising work for the WorldBeat Center.
All contributions are greatly appreciated. As a nonprofit organization, donations to the WorldBeat Center and WorldBeat Productions are tax deductible.
