Your Gift to the Southern Highland Craft Guild Makes a Difference!



Each year we are pleased to welcome over 200,000 visitors to the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Folk Art Center for exhibitions, special events, daily demonstrations and seasonal entertainment – all provided at no charge to the public. Through the generous support of our donors, we can continue to provide these offerings, and even expand them, as we seek to educate adults and children about the craft heritage and artisans of the Southern Appalachians.

There are many ways to make a difference. With your directed gift, we can continue to enhance and increase our educational programs and exhibits for a welcoming public. A gift to The Robert W. Gray Library Collection, The Archives Collection, The Permanent Collection, The Education Fund, or The Endowment Funds enable us to add to our collections, provide additional support for programming and look to the future with confidence.

Another important way you can contribute to the Southern Highland Craft Guild is to make your gift for unrestricted purposes. These donations help us maintain the Guild’s vital operating functions, while also helping us accomplish things that are otherwise not available within our budget. For example, your contributions can make a difference in the Guild’s ability to provide resources for children’s educational tours and workshops, or to update security, infrastructure, and technology.

However, you choose to give, your support is absolutely vital as we seek to ensure our region’s tradition of fine craft for generations to come.
