As an all-volunteer, non-profit community event, Worldcon is funded almost exclusively by membership sales. Worldcon 76 has been fortunate enough to benefit from the generosity of a number of individuals and companies, who opened their hearts and wallets to help us reach a little bit farther, shine a little bit brighter, and build an even more spectacular Spectacular for the engagement and enjoyment of our membership.
Galactic Sponsor: Google
Our profound thanks goes to Google for their generous support of Worldcon 76 in San Jose, for underwriting a portion of the 2018 Hugo Awards Ceremony, accessibility, hospitality, and a host of items to make members have a Worldcon experience that was just a bit nicer.
Interstellar sponsors: the Initiatives
We also want to take a moment to thank the breathtaking generosity of the individuals who donated to GoH John Picacio's Mexicanx Initiative, and member Chuck Serface's GLBTQ Initiative, to help bring new voices into the ongoing conversation that is Worldcon and WSFS.
These are the individuals and companies who opened their talents, their wallets, their storehouses and their closets to loan us materiel to help Worldcon 76 build the sights and wonders filling our Exhibits Hall (and a few other locations at Worldcon 76):
