Friends of Folklore Village

The Friends of Folklore Village was incorporated in 1998 as a stand-alone 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, whose purpose is to help provide financial support for Folklore Village.  Newly resurrected in the fall of 2014, the organization has pledged to sponsor two fundraising events per year.
