Great Canadian Giving Challenge

Rise To The Challenge

We welcome more than 10,000 people every day of our festival weekend.
Are you one of those 10,000+ people?

WE NEED YOUR HELP
From June 1 to June 30, we’re asking 10,000 people (including you!)
to donate $5 or more to the Festival through CanadaHelps

WHY?
Every $1 you donate to the Vancouver Folk Music Festival in June via CanadaHelps counts as one entry for us to win $10,000 through the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

$5 x 10,000 people = $50,000 for the Festival
AND 50,000 chances for the Festival to win $10,000!

WILL YOU TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE?

YOUR DONATION . . .

  • Brings an inclusive, diverse lineup of amazing artists from around the world
  • Keeps our festival green and preserves our beautiful Jericho Beach Park
  • Provides accessibility services to patrons with disabilities and/or mobility challenges
  • Gives free admission to kids 12 and under
  • Welcomes newcomers to Canada to the festival through our Open Arms Initiative

The festival couldn’t happen without the support of folks like you.
Help us take up the CanadaHelps Great Canadian Giving Challenge to raise $50,000 this June (and maybe win $10,000 more!).
