The Charity Initiative

Join us at A-Kon in utilizing fandom as a force capable of incredible impact and positive change. There is no limit to the good we can achieve by working together!

A-Kon has always been a supporter of quality non-profits both internationally and right here at home. Every year we elect a charity that we feel is dedicated to a cause that truly matters. From causes ranging anywhere from disaster relief to literacy, we work with amazing organizations to guarantee the majority of every dollar you give goes directly to the cause you’ve chosen invest in.

This year we are continuing our support for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children!

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children helps thousands of children in need each year, and relies on donations to continue operating. Help us support them this year by donating through the A-Kon Charity Initiative! For more information, check them out here.
