Endowment Fund - Forever Folk Fest

The Edmonton Folk Music Festival Society Fund is an important part of the Edmonton Folk Festival's long-term financial stability plan. This fund is used to help keep ticket prices accessible for all patrons in times of rising costs, especially for world-calibre artists. The Fund provides an opportunity for patrons of fine folk music to ensure this style of music continues forever in the Edmonton region. The Folk Festival also contributes surplus funds yearly and all proceeds from candle sales during the Festival to grow the Fund.

The Endowment Fund—All funds donated to the Fund are entrusted to the Edmonton Community Foundation for investment. The Festival receives an annual income of 3.5% per year forever.

Donate to the Endowment Fund online, OR donate directly through the Edmonton Community Foundation, memo: Edmonton Folk Festival at 9910-103 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 2V7.

No matter which way you choose to donate, you will receive a charitable tax receipt, as the festival is a registered charity (BN/Reg. No. 128941226RR0001). We appreciate any contribution, but tax receipts will only be issued for amounts of $50.00 or more, for donations received before December 31.
