AthFest Educates Is A Non Profit Organization Committed To Sustaining And Advancing Music And Arts Education For Youth In Athens-Clarke County. To Fulfill Our Mission, We Produce Two Annual Fundraisers, The AthFest Music & Arts Festival And The AthHalf Half Marathon. The Proceeds From These Events Fund The Organization’s Bi-Annual Grant-Making Efforts.
Who Benefits from AthFest Educates:
Through grants to local teachers, youth development specialists, and community organizations, AthFest Educates advances music and arts education for young people across Athens-Clarke County. Without the support of AthFest Educates, many of the creative music and arts programs and resources our young learners currently access simply would not exist.
7,182 youth benefited from AthFest Educates funding in 2016-2017.
32 instruments purchased for CCSD schools in 2016 -2017.
$28,803 awarded so far for the 2017 – 2018 school year.
