Every Little Bit Helps

Your financial support is essential to our festival! Money from sponsorships and grants has made it possible to book some of the finest national and regional performers in the folk arts, such as Hot Club of Cowtown, Irish fiddle champion Liz Carroll, the award-winning Cojunto band Los T-Birds from Austin, Texas and many, many fine local groups and performers. In addition, financial donations allow the festival to emphasize a wide variety of hands-on and participatory workshops and events for children and adults alike. Please consider a monetary donation to the festival and keep folk art traditions and innovations alive!

We offer two ways to contribute – online through the PayPal link below or by postal mail to CU Folk and Roots Festival, PO Box 331, Urbana, IL 61803. The Festival is a 501c3 organization, so your donations are tax deductible. Be sure to check our Sponsorship Levels page to find out about the benefits of giving!
