Contribute to SFMS

If you enjoy folk music, we encourage you to support SFMS in any way you can. Ticket revenue provides only a third of our income: the rest comes from folks to you, who keep the “folk” in Susquehanna Folk Music Society.

These can range from $1 refreshment purchases to major grants. Ask your tax advisor about tax deductibility.

  • Donate using your credit card thru »
  • Become a Member: your membership can pay for itself through admission discounts.
  • Sponsor an Event: get front-row seats, meet your folk heroes, and see your name in lights!
  • In-Kind Donations: from paper and printing, to lodging and catering, to creative contributions for our annual Silent Auction. Ask about quid pro quos!
  • Refreshments at Events: donate homemade or store-bought baked goods, or purchase them at the events.
