Support Gritty City Rep

We’ve met our goal! But that doesn’t mean we’re done.

We had a blast at Circle Up: A Flight Deck Open Mic, and are so grateful for everyone who came out to spend the evening with us! Thanks to support from audience members, we were able to accept an anonymous matching donation of $2,000…which got us to our $8,000 goal!

Now that we’ve met our basic recovery needs, we’re helping out our resident company Gritty City Rep. This pre-professional training program does amazing work for the future artistic leaders of Oakland. Like the Flight Deck, they lost some crucial tools in the recent break-in — which raisied our fundraising goal to $10,000.

Donate now and support this groundbreaking company!


Help the Flight Deck Replace Stolen Equipment

On November 29, 2017, the Flight Deck — Ragged Wing Ensemble’s home, and the home of many other creative organizations and individual artists — was the victim of a break-in that resulted in the loss of some much-needed equipment.

Read more about the theft, the costs of recovery, and what you can do to help at the Flight Deck website.
