Buy Local

Since I’m local to the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware area in Northeast USA, I’ll start with groups and services that I know here.

Philanthropy: Donate your time, skills, or money.

  • Unbroken Chain Foundation: Created in the spring of 1997 by Phil Lesh and friends, the Unbroken Chain Foundation is a nonprofit organization which seeks to perpetuate the long-standing tradition of community service that has been the hallmark of the remarkable three-decade relationship between the Grateful Dead and its audience.
  • Rex Foundation:  In the fall of 1983, the Rex Foundation was established as a non-profit charitable organization by members of the Grateful Dead and friends to further this tradition.
  • Electronic Frontier Foundation: The Electronic Frontier Foundation was founded in July of 1990 in response to a basic threat to speech.
