Sponsorship

FARM 2012The Annual FARM Gathering is organized 100% by volunteers. Folk music concert and festival presenters, DJs, performers, educators, as well as those who provide products and services to these folks will come together in the spirit of helping to bring attention to this truly grassroots genre.

In addition to the costs associated with putting on a 3-day conference, various office expenses are incurred by FARM throughout the year. Sponsors at all levels contribute to making the Annual Gathering and day-to-day organizational activities possible. FARM prides itself in representing the many diverse faces of our Midwest folk community and does it all with the help of folks like you who generously sponsor our organization.
