Donations & Swag
As you may be aware, the cost of running a fan con is not cheap. We want to make our first year as CONfabulation the best it can possibly be for attendees, and we’re asking for a little help from you to do it.
We’re showing a total of $500 to raise, but really we have no specific monetary goal to reach. We want to be transparent about all donations we receive, so we set up a goal tracker so everyone can see what money has come in.
You can donate any amount you’d like, starting at $1. All donations of $10+ will receive a special thanks in our program. We also have some great swag options for you if you donate a little more. If you can’t attend the con, but would still like some cool CONfab swag, we’ve got you covered!
Every year we have a special themed button that’s included in the swag bag. This year we’ll be offering three different buttons, at random. For $20, you will get a full set of mini logo buttons in your swag bag at the con. For $25, we have a special 3.5″ button designed for donors. Both of these options are available for non-attendees (set of 3 mini buttons is $25 if you’re not attending the con).
Those who donate $25 get a CONfab logo bag. For $30, you get the bag and a logo pen. And for $50, we’ll include a cup with the logo as well. Cups are a really nice double walled plastic cup with straw and screw-on lid (if you ever attended Wincon prior to 2015, these are the same cups); the extra cost for the swag with cup is because plastic cups don’t fold down nicely enough to fit into a mailing envelope. 😛
Domestic US shipping is included in the cost of your donation, and swag will be sent out post-con due to manufacturing lead times. For our international supporters, please add on $5 for shipping.
We also welcome donations of passes for other attendees. Registration is $75 for the weekend, and if you’d like your donation to go towards registration any attendee, please let us know. If you want to pay for a specific person’s registration, you can fill out our registration form.
We really appreciate any help you wish to give. We want to make the con as great an experience for our attendees as possible, and hopefully continue to do so for years to come!
