We respectfully ask you to act for Folkmoot today, #GivingTuesday.
You can support our growing programs by simply clicking on the DONATE button at the top of this page. You can also become a Friend of Folkmoot.
With the holidays and the end of the year approaching, it is a great time to make a gift to Folkmoot USA. Each dollar goes toward broadening cultural understanding and acceptance through the arts, creating a global community of friends.
Folkmoot is a beacon of peace and prosperity in a world too often fraught with cultural conflict and division. From our schools to our workplaces in the United States and abroad, differences in background and culture sometimes create harmful perceptions that can result in bullying and fractured communities. Yet Folkmoot successfully uses heritage dance, music, costume and other arts to introduce children and adults in WNC and from around the world to cultures different than our own. Through community programs, events and festivals, Folkmoot helps build cultural bridges based on common values (as differences become less imposing), changing how we relate to community members and the rest of the world.
The Folkmoot Festival has hosted more than 8000 performers from almost 200 foreign countries around the globe, creating a worldwide network of goodwill ambassadors. This summer program has been the center point for our organization. With your help, we can do more. Folkmoot is expanding into year-round programming as we complete renovations on our 42,000 sq. ft. Friendship Center, the Historic Hazelwood School. The Center will be a resource for our entire community!
As a 32 year strong 501(c)3 non-profit, Folkmoot fulfills its purpose with event proceeds, grants, sponsorships, public support and most importantly, individual donations. You can help in several ways. Make a Friends of Folkmoot donation, which will fund Folkmoot’s 2016 program and operating expenses. Any amount of $150 or greater gets you admission for two to the 2016 Friends Gala Event or show of your choice:
**$150 – Two Tickets, Friends Gala Event or Two Tickets, show of your choice, July 21 – 31, 2016

- $500 each – Auditorium seats with commemorative message
- $350 each – International flags for town displays, and a commemorative brick at FFC

We deeply appreciate your support of Folkmoot. THANK YOU for embracing Folkmoot and for helping to produce another year of summer magic. NOW help bring the magic year-round!
