The Southern Guitar Festival and Competition relies solely on generous contributions from our friends, community, and art organizations in order to continue to deliver on our promise to provide world-caliber performances, education and competitions to the music-loving Southeast.

Please consider becoming our friend and supporting us at any level that feels right for you. Your support will allow our festival and competition to continue to showcase the best guitar players from around the world and educate and advance the developing careers of young musicians in our region. Donations are tax deductible.

We appreciate donations at any level, whether you’re more comfortable giving $10 or $100. Coming soon, you will also be able to purchase SGFC Merchandise for our 10th anniversary!

You can also designate Southern Guitar Festival as your charity of choice when making purchases at Amazon Smile so that a percentage of your purchases there will be matched by Amazon to benefit SGFC.
