Your Gift to Folklife Helps Preserve a Seattle Treasure

Since 1972 Northwest Folklife has strengthened our communities by creating opportunities for all to share, experience and celebrate the diverse artistic and cultural traditions of our region. We believe that arts and culture belong to everyone – not just those who can afford the price of a ticket – and understand that creating an all-accessible, large platform for our communities to express their voices requires the investment and financial support from those of you who share these values.

Today we ask for your support to ensure that Folklife continues to amplify the voices of independent and community artists, including immigrants, refugees, and underrepresented communities, and that everyone feels welcome and appreciated in our city, regardless of their income or social status.

Please consider making a year-end contribution to Northwest Folklife to help preserve our Seattle treasure. We ask that you be as generous as you possibly can. Your gift is a direct investment in the future of one of the last freestanding, all-accessible, community-powered art, culture, and heritage festivals in our country, created by the people for the people. As always, we will use 100% of your contribution to stay true to our mission of creating opportunities for ALL to celebrate, share, and participate in the evolving cultural traditions of the Pacific Northwest.

On behalf of Northwest Folklife’s Board of Directors, Staff, Community Council, Artists, Culture Bearers, Volunteers, and Patrons, we thank you for standing with Northwest Folklife and look forward to celebrating with you the incredible art, music, dance, stories, cuisine, and traditions of our diverse communities throughout 2018.
