The L.A.S.T. festival is organized by unpaid volunteers and many of the artists and speakers offer their time for free. Our mission is to serve the community and therefore we feel strong about our events to be kept free of charge and open to everybody.

We rely on funding from the university and other academic sponsors.

If you would like to contribute, your contribution is very welcome. When you order a free ticket, simply click on the options to donate.

Your contribution will go to the nonprofit Thymos Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization based in Redwood City, California. Please consult your financial advisor for details regarding tax-deductibility.
