  • Give Back on Giving Tuesday

    Dear Friends of Folklife,

    #GivingTuesday is all about the power of community, which is at the core of our mission to promote greater understanding and sustainability of cultural heritage across the United States and around the world.

    Will you help support our important work by making a special #GivingTuesday gift today to help support the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage?

    Your gift will be put to work immediately, helping us reach and impact millions of people every year, from our annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival—a powerful example of cultural democracy that has been free to the public since 1967—to research and education programs that affect cultural heritage policies and practices at local, national, and international levels.

    Your support makes all these things possible, and so much more.

    Please make your #GivingTuesday gift before midnight tonight. Thank you for believing in the power of community.

    Michael A. Mason

    Sincerely,

    Michael A. Mason

    Director
