Support the NCTA

The National Council for the Traditional Arts relies on the generosity of our many friends. The NCTA is incorporated under IRS section 501(c)(3), so contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. If you are interested in supporting the NCTA and our work to preserve and present folk and traditional arts locally, regionally, and nationally, please contact the NCTA at giving@ncta-usa.org or 301.565.0654 x19.

Throughout 2023 the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) is commemorating its 90th anniversary—and we are thrilled to announce 90 Years, a campaign that celebrates the NCTA and its contributions to the nation for the past nine decades. We ask that you join us in marking this achievement, and supporting our work in future decades, through this special 90 Years giving campaign!

As we launch this effort, we are looking to meet our first campaign goal—90 gifts at $90!
