Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

The Ark Endowment Fund

Established in 2002, this Agency Endowment supports the mission of The Ark, Ann Arbor's nonprofit home for acoustic music. This fund supports the encouragement of folk, roots and ethnic music and related arts. 

Founded in 1965, The Ark is North America's oldest continuing non-profit acoustic music club.  Presenting over 250 shows each year, The Ark is internationally renowned for the quality and breadth of its programming, which includes traditional folk, contemporary singer/songwriters, blues, jazz, country and bluegrass as well as the music of many ethnic cultures.  If not for The Ark, much of this music and the artists who play it would not be heard in Michigan.
