The WisCon Member Assistance Fund provides financial aid for people to attend the con.
Depending on the number of nominations and the amount of donations, the committee will try to help out as many people as possible who would like to come to WisCon but need some support to do so.
Here’s the deal: For donations made to WisCon’s Member Assistance Fund from now until Saturday night (11:59pm Central Time), i will match every dollar up to $500 — TWICE. So if you donate $5 to WMAF this week, i’ll donate $10. If we all pull together, this could mean another $1,500 to help bring people to WisCon 40 this May.
Also, for every membership donated to the Fund, I’ll donate another one. If you’re interested in donating a membership, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Sunday, the SF3 Treasurer and i will tally it all up, i’ll PayPal some monies over to WisCon, and we’ll announce here just how much damage we did to my tax refund.
WisCon 40 takes place May 27-30, 2016.
