The Festival is organized by the Abbot Kinney Festival Association (AKFA) and is a fundraiser for the AKFA Community Grants Program. AKFA has donated more than a quarter million dollars to the Venice community since the grants program began!
AKFA has helped fund some fantastic projects, including an old school photography workshop at Venice Arts, a Coding is Cool workshop at Children's Lifesaving Foundation, and bringing classical music to schools with the Venice Symphony Orchestra (pictured). Check out this page for a list of past recipients and the inspiring projects they implement.
