Sisters Folk Festival finalized the purchase of the Sisters Art Works Building in December of 2019, completing a two-year, $1.4 million capital campaign that included upgrades and additions to our home office and site of our largest festival venue. Two of the largest contributors to the campaign were Cindy and Duncan Campbell, who are well known in Oregon for their philanthropic efforts as founders of Friends of the Children, a nationwide organization dedicated to breaking the generational cycle of poverty. The Campbells see their support of Sisters Folk Festival as consistent with their giving. “Almost all of our philanthropy is focused on children and youth — from children facing some of the biggest barriers in life to youth seeking growth opportunities like those in the Americana Project who want to pursue music and the arts. Our gift was a very easy decision to make.” The gallery located inside of SFF’s home site, the Sisters Art Works Building, was dedicated the Cindy and Duncan Campbell Gallery Fall of 2020.
