NIVA's mission is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters throughout the United States.

90% of independent music venues are on the verge of closing forever. NIVA has launched the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund to raise money, so these venues don’t go away forever. The fund will be administered by The Giving Back Fund; a separate non-profit that will oversee the application process for venues to receive grants from the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund.
