Interview with Kim Dreher of VegFund

Today we have an interview with Kim Dreher, Director of VegFund, an organization based in Glendale, California that aims to support animal advocacy organizations across the country.

CAA:  Why are you sponsoring the Veg Fest?

Kim:  Veg Fests are a fantastic way to expose the public to the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. It’s a positive form of outreach that gives people the opportunity to try delicious vegan food, learn about the issues, and enjoy a fun day with friends/family.

CAA:  What is your mission?

Kim:  VegFund empowers vegan activists worldwide by funding and supporting outreach activities that inspire people to choose and maintain a vegan lifestyle.

CAA:  What are you most excited about at the Veg Fest?

Kim:  The number of lives that will be changed as a result of this event. Each person who reduces or eliminates his/her consumption of animal products has a tremendous impact.

CAA:  What do you see in the future for animal advocacy?

Kim:  Now, and in the future, social media offers incredible tools for spreading the vegan message. VegFund works to stay on the cutting edge of this technology and creates programs that take advantage of what these tools have to offer. For more info, email us at
