The Society for Atlantic Fan Cultures is proud to be a non-profit organization with 100% of our proceeds going towards funding of future events and local charities.

For the past two years, SfAFC has been a supporter of the IWK Health Centre Foundation. We have raised thousands of dollars through our charity auctions and raffles that have directly contributed to the well-being and comfort of children and their families across the Maritimes.
