As the year winds to a close, TAUNY is raising funds to support 2019 activity. “Donations from individuals and businesses made a lot of great things happen in 2018. Year-end gifts of any size will help us get off to a good start on a new year,” says Executive Director Jill Breit, “Operating The TAUNY Center as a community space and offering dozens of high-quality programs each year is only possible with the help of many, who contribute financially and volunteer their time. As we ask for gifts this time of year, we also want to sincerely thank everyone who has invested in our work to serve people of all ages in our region.” It’s quick and easy to make a gift online at tauny.org/support.

The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, Downtown Canton, NY. TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people understand and appreciate the folk traditions and local culture of everyday life–present and past–in the North Country. To do so, TAUNY seeks to research and preserve a record of diverse groups, customs and traditions; to recognize and empower traditional arts and artists; to identify and promote regional identity; and to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about folklore and culture.
