Support Our Mission

There are many ways to help

Indy VegFest is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, run completely by volunteers; therefore all of your donations will contribute directly to the operating expenses associated with our events throughout the year.

We are committed to keeping admission to Indy VegFest free of charge, as our mission is to educate the public about the compassionate, environmental, and health facets of a vegan lifestyle. In addition to a large annual event, we have year-round educational activities planned, such as free plant-based cooking classes led by Indy-area chefs. There is a great deal of work to be done, and we are excited for what the future will bring!
