About the Friends
The Friends of Folklore Village was incorporated in 1998 as a stand-alone 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, whose purpose is to help provide financial support for Folklore Village. Newly resurrected in the fall of 2014, the organization has pledged to sponsor two fundraising events per year. In 2016, The Friends helped Folklore Village celebrate The Year of Jane Farwell with special centennial birthday events, a fabulous reunion weekend, and extraordinary fund raising, garnering $28,000 for Folklore Village ~ a significant percentage of our yearly fundraising goal!

Do you love the Folklore Village Community? Would you like to be part of a dynamic group that supports Folklore Village? The Friends of Folklore Village is seeking new members to be part of our merry band. In “normal” years we primarily host fun parties. In times of pandemic, we host online auctions, a raffle, and other fun events. Please contact Terri at Folklore Village if you’re interested. email@example.com
Wondering what the Friends have fun doing?
Check out their fabulous PAST FUNDRAISERS!
Whereas we truly appreciate all of the “pennies from heaven” that show up on our doorstep as a result of your wonderful Facebook birthday fundraisers, Facebook does not let us know who initiated the fundraiser in the first place, or how much from their funds transfer is a result of whose fundraiser. If you choose to start a Facebook fundraiser, could you kindly tell us that you did/are doing it, and after it is over, how much was raised? It will clarify our accounting, and give us an opportunity to thank you!
