Donate and Support

As a non-profit  Music Presenter, The Mainstay receives support from the Maryland State Arts Council, the Kent County Arts Council, and other granting and foundation entities whose logos are proudly displayed on our website.  We solicit donations from individuals each Fall by way of our annual appeal sent by US Postal Service and emailed to our subscribers.  And there’s always the “donate now” button on our website.  Other ways to support the mission of The Mainstay follow:

Charlie Byrd Society

Charlie Bryd’s performances at The Mainstay helped establish our tradition of musical excellence.  To honor Charlie’s legacy and support The Mainstay’s commitment to spectacular music and service to the community, we invite you to join the Charlie Byrd Society.  Membership information is included in our annual appeal mailing or upon request.

Chuck Redd Fund

Chuck Redd first played at the Mainstay in 1998 as a member of Charlie Byrd’s band. Ever since, he has been delighting our audiences with his musical magic. Chuck has been responsible for attracting many other outstanding musicians to our stage who come because of his reputation and personal appeal. Those of us who have thrilled to these fabulous performances are profoundly grateful.  To acknowledge and support Chuck’s efforts on our behalf, we are pleased to announce the creation of the Chuck Redd Fund. This will help provide funding to support special concerts that our limited budget could not afford otherwise. If you would like to support the Chuck Redd Fund, please send a check or credit card information including expiration date to:

The Mainstay, PO Box 238, Rock Hall, MD 21661
Attention: Chuck Redd Fund
