FFM Annual Appeal

Dear friend,

I’m reaching out to you today on behalf of the Family Folk Machine. The FFM has been building community and training kids and adults to reach their musical potential by presenting heartwarming concerts for nearly seven years. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and we are seeking financial support in order to sustain the growth of our mission and activities into the future. 

I’m hoping you can support us with a donation of any size. We accept anyone who wants to sing with the choir regardless of ability to pay, and we keep fees low for all our members. Support from our community helps us to continue this part of our mission while also growing in creative new directions.

Please support the Family Folk Machine today by following this secure link. Or take advantage of the opportunity for a matching donation from the Community Foundation of Johnson County by donating on the CFJC’s Great Give Day, November 13 (details below). 

Hope to see you at our fall concert, “One Family,” on Sunday, November 17, at 3 p.m. at the Englert Theatre! Thanks for your support of the Family Folk Machine.

Yours in community,

Jean Littlejohn
Artistic and Executive Director, Family Folk Machine
