Make a Gift Toward the Future of Folk

What are the moments that defined folk for you?

Right now, as we’re all spread out across the globe, we’re missing the sense of community felt when we all can come together and celebrate the joy that music brings us. In a normal year, we’d have spent the last few months at folk festivals close to home and far away, meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones.

We invite you to share your memories with the community, too! What does folk truly mean to you? What was that defining moment where you knew that you were about to become a folkie for life?

Using the hashtag #iheartfolk, share a video of a meaningful story about your connection to the community on social media (Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter). Don’t forget to pick 3-5 friends whose story you think we should hear and tag them with an invite to share!

To bring the #iheartfolk campaign to life, we now have beautiful mugs that you can use around the campfire while sharing your stories. 

To get one of these beautiful mugs, all you need to do is donate $60 to FAI or make a $5 a month recurring donation! Plus, during the week of #GivingTuesday, your donation will be matched by an anonymous donor, and Pete Browne and Julie Walker Browne!

Why donate to Folk Alliance International?
