Help us make the Seattle Foundation’s eighth and final GiveBIG the biggest day of giving for Northwest Folklife! Thanks to your support, Northwest Folklife continues to use the power of arts and music to unite communities, celebrate diversity, and promote respect for one another. We believe that arts and culture belong to everyone, not just those who could afford the price of a ticket, and strive to create strong communities by encouraging participation in the arts and breaking down cultural stereotypes.

Please remember that the Northwest Folklife Festival is one of the last remaining, all-accessible, community-curated and powered folk celebrations in America, and we cannot take it for granted! To preserve our Seattle treasure, we need your support now more than ever.
