Planned Giving

Your legacy gift will support Northwest Folklife in fulfilling its mission to create opportunities for all to celebrate, share, and participate in the evolving cultural traditions of the Pacific Northwest. Your bequest will strengthen our communities through arts and culture for generations to come.

A perennial favorite since 1972, the Northwest Folklife Festival is exceptional for its community engagement. Imagine the Pacific Northwest 46 years ago, and the differences we see today. Just as the face of the region evolves, becoming more diverse and international, Northwest Folklife keeps pace, as a mirror to the people of our region, amplifying voices through the arts and culture.

If you have included Northwest Folklife in your estate plans, please let us know. We would love to speak with you, and acknowledge your foresight and vision.
