It takes a lot to be your Folk School. With 800+ weeklong and weekend classes for 6,200+ people per year, and with vibrant music, dance, craft, and art event offerings, all on a large, 270-acre campus, your non-profit needs the support of everyone who values immersive creative learning and relational interactions as a way to a more fulfilled life.
At its heart, our annual Fall Festival is simply a joyous community event. Each year, we welcome over 200 dedicated volunteers, and our non-profit food vendors use their proceeds as a fundraising vehicle. The Festival also provides our talented local and regional artists with a platform to generate a major source of income.
"Best wishes to the Folk School and all those who work to make it the treasure that it is."
"In honor of Helen Gibson: my friend, my teacher, and the one who inspired me to woodcarve years ago. For her patience, her skill, and for her love for the art."
"Thinking of David Kaynor and honoring him by donating to the Dance Musicians Week scholarship fund. Also, I'm so thankful and impressed by the work that our new Music and Dance Coordinators are doing, in spite of not being able to gather as a community to dance and sing, during the pandemic."
"Gift provided in honor of my daughter who considers the Folk School her true home."
Our recent Annual Reports are available here, on our website. We publish them here in grateful recognition of our generous supporters and to share our audited financial performance as a non-profit organization. The Folk School transforms lives, bringing people together in a nurturing environment for experiences in learning and community life that spark self-discovery. This mission is made possible by our students, community members, instructors, resident artists, studio assistants, performers, volunteers, staff and board – together, we are the Folk School.
