Support the norf

Nief-Norf is funded in part by foundations and ticket sales, but we depend on your ongoing support to bolster our innovative programming, exceptional performances, and education programs. Over the years contributions from our audiences have helped us grow into one of the most ambitious and “avant-leaning” new music organizations in the nation. We always present a list of our current donors in our printed concert programs. Your encouragement of the creation and presentation of today’s music through the Knoxville Concert Series, Nief-Norf Summer Music Festival, and the Research Summit is met with our most heartfelt thanks.

Nief-Norf is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, EIN 30-0782885. Donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent permitted under applicable laws. We greatly appreciate your generosity; thank you very much for your support of contemporary music. To support our current season, make a secure online donation below.
