Support Oakland First Fridays

The Oakland First Fridays community festival has been a vital place for local entrepreneurs to test ideas and sell their work. Due to COVID-19, the festival is on pause, interrupting a significant source of revenue for these creators.

True to our mission, we are continuing to offer programming to support Oakland creators, but we can't do it without your help.  
By supporting Oakland First Fridays, you're supporting Oakland creators.

Funds raised will be used to:

- Fund projects supporting Oakland artists and entrepreneurs (like our artist accelerator program)
- Pay for necessary staff for programs
- Fund re-opening of the community festival (when it's safe to do so)

Oakland First Fridays is a program of the Koreatown Northgate Community Benefit District (KONO) in Oakland, CA.

Charitable donations are made to Koreatown Northgate Community Benefit District (KONO), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and are 100% tax-deductible.
