While most of Worldcon 76's expenses are funded by Membership, Dealers Room and Art Show fees, there are a number of opportunities for members or the public to assist with some special projects. Members can donate during the registration process, but we've added some links here for people who wish to help without going through the RegOnline interface. Donations are processed via the PayPal account of our parent non-profit, San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, Inc (SFSFC)
Mexicanx Initiative Assistance Fund
This fund is to assist members sponsored via Guest of Honor John Picacio's Mexicanx Initiative to cover their travel and lodging expenses. Worldcon 76 and SFSFC are managing this fund independently of the main Worldcon 76 budget as directed by Mr. Picacio.
To learn more about the Mexicanx Initiative, you can visit John's website and read his explanation there.
LGBTQ Membership Initiative Assistance
This fund is to sponsor memberships as part of member Chuck Serface's LGBTQ Initiative to encourage more active attendance and participation by this often underrepresented segment of the fan community.
Inspired by John Picacio's campaign, Chuck explains the LGBTQ Initiative on his blog here.
If you'd just like to donate to Worldcon 76 to help us build a better convention, you may do so. You may indicate to what area you'd prefer we apply the funds, but final allocation of such donations will be determined by the Finance Division.
