Do you love music? Or do you have a passion for environmental sustainability and social justice? If so, CT Folk, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, could be the right place for you to invest your skills and expertise.

CT Folk seeks to engage, entertain and inspire a diverse audience through music and conversation to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable community. And we are looking for Board Members to join our dedicated group during our exciting phase of growth.

In order to fully realize our strategic plan, expand our reach, and deepen our partnerships throughout Connecticut, we need additional capacity on our board. We are looking for several specific areas of expertise, but encourage anyone excited by this opportunity to apply. Currently we have a particular need for philanthropy, marketing, and financial experts.
