For 2K19 we are running a flash Fund it campaign over two weeks. This will continue to be one of the main sources of funding for K-FEST. As a volunteer organisation, it is safe to say that without the contributions of all those via Fund it K-FEST would not meet the standard it has set on the national cultural stage.
K-FEST is organised by a group of passionate and committed artists, business people, educators, and volunteers, who work with a finance officer to ensure maximum bang for our buck. Over 60 events, include a pop-up gallery trail, live music, spoken word, drama, film, street entertainment, kids and families activities.
Your generosity will help make K-FEST 2K19, May 31st-June 2nd, bigger and better than ever. Money raised through Fund it will help us to cover many of these costs. Bands need to be paid, artists’ expenses need to be covered, programmes and posters need to be printed and distributed, advertising and media coverage needs to be secured... The list goes on.
This year, as well as bringing amazing artists, musicians, thespians and poets to wow and entertain festival-goers, we will continue to tackle world climate change! Well, we will do our bit, you will see this greening policy reflected in the Fund it rewards this year, as well as other steps.
For those familiar with K-FEST and Fund it, we would be delighted if you would consider contributing again, and for those contributing for the first time, welcome to the K-FEST family. Money is not taken from your account until the campaign ends (and only if the total target amount is reached), so you don't need money at the time you make the pledge. You can also pledge any amount, with rewards starting at €25.
By contributing to K-FEST you’re not just guaranteeing yourself the best weekend out of the year — you’re supporting the creativity and careers of dozens of visual and performing artists and musicians, as well as helping create a showcase for Ireland’s best emerging talent.
