This year, Firefly Gathering has incorporated as its own entity. It is run by a group of educators, activists and stewards who are working diligently to make this a financially sustainable project while promoting our mission. We are currently in the process of filing our application to the IRS to receive 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit and anticipate its completion by the end of 2019.

Our mission is to share skills of outdoor and traditional living, natural medicine, crafts and community resilience in Southern Appalachia to promote healthy, connected and sustainable livelihoods on Earth.

Every dollar goes toward helping make this event happen. All our budgets are minimal. No one makes a profit off of ticket sales.

Click here for a summary of our estimated income and expense distribution for the 2019 event.

We share this information as a step toward greater transparency and trust. Starting in 2020, our IRS Tax Form 990 will be available for viewing. Until then, please contact us with any questions at info@fireflygathering.org. See you at the gathering.

“To me, Firefly is special because it’s the gathering that’s closest to home (literally). It’s the place where I can show up as my authentic self and be celebrated. It is the place where I can share my gifts as a teacher and also help inspire folks who are hungry for knowledge and skills.”

“It wasn’t until I started attending Earthskills gatherings that I reconnected with my ‘Little Me’ who had participated in nature, not existing merely as a witness and bystander to its workings.”
