We are truly an event created by the fans for the fans, and our funding comes solely from donations and registrations to the event. To help support our ongoing efforts to create an inclusive community experience in 2023 and beyond, please consider donating during Give to the Max Day this week.
We’d also suggest donations to our charity partner, Geek Partnership Society, who provide valuable support to organizations like us and the geek community at large.
