The Sharing Festival is a fundraising event hosted by YNOT Foundation in collaboration with Young Nak Presbyterian Church of Los Angeles and various local organizations and agencies to help public and non-profit organizations located in the Lincoln Heights area.
This event started in 2007 with the vision to help other organizations to continue and maintain their social outreach programs even during difficult economic times. While funding opportunities from the government and many private funders are being cut down, we work hard to gather and mobilize our community assets to help community organizations to continue offering programs that benefit the community.
We believe in working together to bring change and transformation in the community.
