Your gift of $50, $100, $500, or $1,000 can help to safeguard the traditions of your family and community: the foods, tales, customs, and art forms that are just not quite the same anywhere else.

If you like, you can specify your gift to a particular special project:
- Building the archive – You can help us digitize years of folklife materials and make them available for you to browse online.
- Supporting traditional artists – You can help our state’s finest traditional performers and craftspeople earn a living from their work so these traditions will continue.
- Community training – You can help communities in North Carolina learn skills from folklife documentation and interviewing to small archive management.
Your donations are tax-deductible and will support folklife projects that benefit communities across the state. In this uncertain economic time, the Folklife Institute—and the traditional arts—count on your support more than ever. Please make your gift today.
