A One Month Fitness Challenge and Fundraiser to raise money for the Philadelphia Folksong Society and its Philadelphia Folk Festival

The Philadelphia Folksong Society (PFS) is dedicated to preserving the past, promoting the present, and securing the future of folk music and related forms of expression through education, presentation, and participation.

Every year thousands of music appreciators and makers gather at the Old Pool Farm in Upper Salford, PA for the Granddaddy of Folk Music Festivals – The Philadelphia Folk Festival.

Besides the ridiculous amount of fun and all the great music, the Festival actually raises money for the Philadelphia Folksong Society to put music in schools, senior centers, and throughout the Philadelphia region - putting music programs where there is none. That’s right – schools without music! It’s just wrong. To continue to reach the more than 10,000 schoolchildren and adults who rely on the Society’s school and community service programs, as well as our many outstanding public music events that bring joy to thousands more, we need to raise at least $100,000 this year.

The Philadelphia Folksong Society is grateful for the devotion of our fans and volunteers to this event that helps keep music enrichment and education available throughout the Delaware Valley. We hope you will join our merry band of Folkies to enhance the lives of children and adults in need, as well as keeping music and traditions alive for all people to enjoy.

Please support the music and the efforts of more than 2,500 volunteers by making a tax-deductible donation to the Philadelphia Folksong Society.

To donate, please visit The Personal Fundraising Page for any of our fundraisers listed on this site, or you can donate here directly through our main page.

If you prefer to send your donation via US mail: Please send check or money order to Philadelphia Folksong Society, 7113 Emlen Street, Philadelphia, PA 19119. Please don’t forget to write my name in the Memo section so that the office staff knows who asked for your donation.

Thanks so much,
