Your generous sponsorship and donations help us cover our expenses such as paying the CSN Boston Band a modest fee for all their hard work, printing the posters and programs, online and print advertising, cool merchandise, hiring a soundperson or renting a soundsystem if needed, food/snacks for the volunteers and band, etc.


We are a nonprofit that donate proceeds to local Boston area music organizations, venues and enrichment programs

Donations are tax deductible and for a very worthy cause...CSN Boston has donated over $27,000 to Boston-area organizations in the last fifteen years, but the needs are greater than ever.
