Please Support WAMA
WAMA is a Nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization created by a dedicated group of volunteers. Our Mission is “To promote the development, performance, and preservation of American acoustic music.”
Since we are a volunteer nonprofit organization, we rely on our members and other Acoustic Music Lovers for support and donations to keep our mission going. Check out our whole website. You'll see we have a lot to offer. We are a great organization to support and be a part of!
WAMA has several ways you can support us and have fun at the same time:

Recently, we were provided with another way to help you donate to us at no extra expense to you. If you shop at Amazon, change to shopping at Amazon Smile. Clicking on the image to the left will take you directly to Amazon Smile. To find out more about Amazon Smile check out the link at the bottom of the page. Amazon Smile will then donate 0.5% of your purchases to WAMA. What could be better than that? While there, add the site as a Bookmark and/or Favorite. Then have FUN shopping, and at the same time, supporting WAMA.
Since WAMA is a Nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization donations are our main form of fund raising. At all of our events we have a Donations Jar and gratefully accept cash and check donations. We have also arranged with PayPal to accept donations using PayPal, Debit, and Credit Cards. Just click on the Donate button on our web pages.
If you like to play your musical instrument at a JAM, please join us at the Famous Winlock Slow JAM at the Hope Grange near Napavine and Winlock, WA. This JAM is held on the 2nd Saturday of each month between October and May, starting at 1:00 pm. Donations are accepted to help pay for the use of the Hope Grange.
WAMA also supports the Oakview JAM in Centralia, WA. This JAM takes place on the Third Friday of the month, October thru April.
