BAFK makes gift awards to encourage local programs and help them financially. Our purpose is to ensure that a variety of art and recreation are available to children and young people for discovery and participation. The awards are designed with a spirit of promoting and helping valuable, innovative projects keep positive momentum on the way to growth and success.
BAFK donors appreciate that their support helps a variety of programs. We help a range of projects from recreational field trips to programs teaching young people how to connect experiences that may lead to a career in business, theater, farming or culinary arts. Our gifting can help these programs get through immediate and short-range financial hurdles on their way to developing more comprehensive goals and opportunities.
