Our Co-founder & Financial Director Elizabeth Cline is gearing up for Giving Tuesday. “…a really important day for people all around the world. They’re supporting causes that they care about… like The Lost Church.”

Mark your calendar for November 29th and donate.

Can we make this TLC’s biggest Giving Tuesday ever?!

Giving Tuesday is a Movement that Unleashes the Power of Radical Generosity Around the World.

GivingTuesday was born and incubated in 2012 at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

There is power when we take action together!

Anna Laura Quinn + Emily Zisman


New Orleans-based vocalist Anna Laura Quinn is rapidly gaining notice for her particular blend of contemporary jazz, well-loved tunes from the American Songbook, French and Brazilian music, and more, all delivered with style, emotional power, and a joie de vivre that recalls the charm and mystique of a bygone era. Emily Zisman is an unapologetic storyteller of the contemporary woman’s experience. Her affinity for well-organized lyrics and carefully crafted melody bring her a sound reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Ani DiFranco, and Norah Jones.

From Your Everlovin’ Editor

Hello and Happy Holidays!

We’re entering a time where we get to express our gratitude and spend time together. We’re also reflecting on an exciting year filled with a lot of very hard work that led to incredible new experiences and brought us back home.

We’re kicking off our End of Year Fundraiser this week and have many fun memories, accomplishments, special guest videos, and future goals to share with you.

Thanks for your support during this time of year where we raise money to survive and thrive in 2023.

We’re savoring the season fully and over the last five weeks of this year our two stages will be filled with delightful, moving, joyful, and uplifting performances.

Can’t wait to laugh and smile with you over this holiday time as we work together to secure a future for The Lost Church.
