"I donate to the Winnipeg Folk Festival because I love music. Music is my best friend, in the good times and in the bad times. My favourite thing about the festival is coming out here and watching grandparents with their grandchildren. Watching the grandchildren looking at the stage and understanding what music is about. Watching the next generation create memories by watching live performances is beautiful."
- Howard Mandshein
"I donate to the Winnipeg Folk Festival because I love beautiful new music. I love making sure that our young new artists are given the opportunities to hone their skills and share them with the world. I donate to the Winnipeg Folk Festival because I believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy this experience. "
- Gail Asper
"I donate to the festival because I believe in what you’re doing. I want the festival to be around for my daughter, and her kids to come. I believe that the festival adds something to our community, which is demonstrated through its adaptability and the different types of genres that it’s played over the years."
- Ron Bailey
