Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent catastrophic flooding in south Louisiana, and we’d like to thank everyone helping with the region’s recovery. The Louisiana Folk Roots offices were flooded when the Vermilion River overtopped its levee, and while we’re waiting for the floodwaters to recede, you can support our recovery by donating below.
As a member of Friends of Louisiana Folk Roots, you’ll receive discounted and priority registration for most of our programs, free admission to the evening dances at our Balfa Week, and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped to preserve and perpetuate our region’s unique cultural heritage. Gift memberships are another great way to show your friends and loved ones that you support and honor their commitment to Louisiana culture. A Lifetime Membership further supports our mission and sustains our organization’s programs.
Grants, corporate sponsorships and private donations are also essential to our operations; and we offer a number of tax, marketing and other benefits to our supporters. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees, and we’re always available to present customized proposals to prospective funders.
Please get in touch with us if you’d like to assist us with our programs and projects.
***Please note that a minimum online donation of $25.00 has been established in an effort to minimize fraud.
