Make a Gift Toward the Future of Folk

Folk Alliance International is a Kansas City-based non-profit with a mission to serve, strengthen, and engage the global folk music community through preservation, presentation, and promotion.

A gift to Folk Alliance International is an investment in the future of folk. We serve the depth and diversity of the genre by providing resources to all roles of the folk music industry — including artists at every stage in their career and a network of small and large businesses, non-profit organizations, and initiatives.

Donations can be made to our charitable mission, funding our areas of greatest need, or to specific funds.
