ECO Maya Festival 2005 is sponsored in part by a grant from the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department. "Francisco Aguabella concert is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Recording Industries Music Performance Fund through the assistance of the Professional Musicians Union Local 47. The Music Performance Fund is supported by retail music royalties, which have suffered from the effects of illegal internet downloading. Music piracy is an issue that impacts the future of the Fund and the communities it serves. Your awareness and support will ensure that these free concerts will continue."
"The Hunab Ku Program is made possible in part by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities as part of its statewide California Stories Initiative. The Council is an independent non-profit organization and a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
