"Seva takes the impulse towards generosity and turns it into compassionate action that helps people in real need. I honor my friends and relations by giving to Seva in their name — the entire world benefits. I hope you'll join me."

Peter Coyote
Actor / Writer

Seva Foundation

"Compassion and caring for people in need - that's simply a moral necessity. But it's not always easy to do. Seva makes it easy. They know how to put your donations to work in ways that truly benefit people."

Joan Baez
Singer / Humanitarian Activist

Seva Foundation

"When we met the folks at Seva, we knew we were among kindred spirits, joining to bring people together in service to others. Whether preventing blindness in Nepal, assisting native peoples in Guatemala and Mexico, or helping our own Native Americans, Seva has been there to help alleviate suffering and improve people's lives. Long may they rock!"

Phil Lesh

Thank you to all the amazing artists that have supported Seva for over 35 years!


Seva has been producing incredible benefit concerts for 35 years — starting in 1979, when the Grateful Dead played a concert in Oakland, CA, that raised $100,000. Since then, dozens of artists have donated their time and talent to support Seva's work. Millions of dollars have been raised, and thousands of new friends have become Seva supporters.
