Thanks to your support, Tuesday Night Project surpassed our $16,000 goal and raised a total of $19,934 during our Keep TN Free 2016 fundraising campaign! As such, we will not be passing the fundraising box around at Tuesday Night Cafe for the rest of the 2016 season. Again, to our family and community: thank you.

If you'd still like to contribute to Tuesday Night Project, we will always welcome your support.


When you support Tuesday Night Project, you are joining a legacy of community members who have fought to create space for Asian American/Pacific Islander stories in Los Angeles.

Although Tuesday Night Project’s programs are free to the public and run by a devoted volunteer staff, your valuable contributions will go directly towards our hard operational costs, including (but not limited to):

  • necessary sound engineering at every show
  • crucial maintenance of our equipment and supplies
  • food to fuel our staff, artists, and volunteers at our shows and meetings
  • the expansion of archiving, digitizing, and making available (for free) 18 years of shows (that’s well over 450 hours of footage!)
  • the many other costs that it takes to fund our shows, our workshops, our planning meetings, and our touring programs!
  • the introduction of special, intimate programs to support our artists and community partnerships!


Every donation --from $5 to $500-- gets us closer to our goal of $12,000!

Special Thanks

Thanks to the LA API Giving Circle, this year's campaign goal is only $12,000 because they are supporting us with $4000 in unrestricted funds, which will help the production for the TNC series and operations for TNP.  (Major shout outs to Ashley Yu and Alex Jung for penning the application and seeing it through!)

Thanks to CA Endowment, the staff along with our director, traci kato-kiriyama, are busy with countless conversations to build our ongoing "art+community Workshop Series" with community partners and the brand new, "TNTable: a dynamic conversation series."  

The art+community Workshop Series will bring collaboration between the TNP organization staff and long-time artists and community partners - we provide the facilitation through a weekly, 3-workshop series, and the community partner provides the participants and the space.  Past partners include API Equality-LA and seniors from the former Diskovery Center.

TNTable: a dynamic conversation series will take a slice of what we highlight at Tuesday Night Cafe, and build an entire conversation around it in an intimate space - to build relationships and avenues for further engagement.  This series will also include the production of a podcast for folks who can't make it to the live event.

Once again, from the Tuesday Night Project Family:

Thank you.
