Forging the Future Capital Campaign
Once in a while, we need to build new studios or renovate historic buildings that can not be covered by our annual fund and require a one-time capital fundraising campaign. Capital Campaigns are essential to providing beautiful new student houses, like the new Field House, protecting our environment, preserving our historic structures and building well-equipped studios, like the Clay Spencer Blacksmith Shop. Without your gifts we would be unable to properly maintain our grounds and studios or provide the enlivening experiences we have offered for more than eight decades.

Planned Giving
These gifts assure that the Folk School will be around for many years to come.

Matching Gifts
Many companies will match the contributions of employees and former employees. Check with the human resources department at your company to find out if there is a matching gift program.

Stock Transfers
A gift of marketable securities is tax-deductible and may offset capital gains. If you would like to make a stock gift to the Folk School, please call or email our Development Manager Reed Caldwell at 828.837.2775 or reed@folkschool.org to receive a Stock Transfer Form.


The David Rakoff Scholarship Fund

To celebrate the life of David Rakoff, The John C. Campbell Folk School has established a fund that will award the first David Rakoff Scholarship in 2013. This Scholarship fund will provide tuition and board for a week-long class. David was a student, a dear friend of the Folk School and a member of its Board of Directors. In a New York Times article, David wrote, "The week I spent there is as close as it gets to my idea of paradise." This scholarship fund will help deserving students experience this unique school in the North Carolina mountains that David loved. We hope that you will consider joining us in this endeavor and make a tax deductible donation to help strengthen this fund.
