Do you Sing? Dance? Play? Do you believe that art can change lives? Your gifts create a very special community that does all that and more. Your support creates a haven for self-expression and countless opportunities to hear new voices and share your own. Today, we are asking for your help to continue the tradition. Please take a moment to make a donation today: show your love for Folklife as a Friend of Folklife donor.
A celebration of the many cultural roots that nurture our community … the Northwest Folklife Festival encourages everyone to get at least a little taste of something outside their usual world … ~ Jerry Large – The Seattle Times
You can champion Northwest Folklife’s future, too! Two dedicated Friends of Folklife will match new gifts of $1,000 or more from corporations and individuals, or $1,000 over your previous year’s giving, in a campaign called ‘1,000 for the Future’ through 9/30/2016! With their gift, these Friends are demonstrating their belief that participation in the arts is as important as observing them. Will you or your business join them? Please contact our Development Director Sheila Siden at 206.233.3953 or sheila @ nwfolklife.org to learn more.
Support from Friends of Folklife has created a home for all cultures and traditions, celebrating its 45th year! As the cultural landscape of our region evolves, so does Northwest Folklife. To do that, we collaborate with community coordinators all year. In 2016, Northwest Folklife will program over 5,000 performers in 65 different genres of music, from Hawaiian to Hip-Hop. Dance performances will represent cultures from Ireland to India. Come join fellow dancers swinging at Warren’s Roadhouse!
Your gift to Northwest Folklife makes the Folklife magic happen. Give online today at this link, or mail your donation to Northwest Folklife 305 Harrison Street Seattle, WA 98109. Thank you.
