I Need Diverse Games is in danger of having to shut down. Attending conferences isn't cheap and GDC cost us way more than even we expected. Attending PAX East isn't going to be as big of a drain but there's no way we can keep operating as is.

A lot of people say they love what we do, but we can't do this work without resources. Many people want us to come to conferences and conventions, or help sponsor events, or get people to conferences and conventions, again, it takes resources, namely funds.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit , but our only consisten funding is through Patreon which isn't dependable as a way to fund our work. It's also not much in the grand scheme of things, as it's currently bringing in $820 a month +/- fluctuation.

If our work means something to you, if it means that we can continue to help diversify the games industry through what we do, be it participating in the GDC Scholarship program every year, or attending conventions like PAX East, PAX West or other things, then we need help to keep doing so.

This is a short term goal, and a stop gap to keep running until we get reclassified as a 501(c)(3) Charity rather than Foundation, which will open the doors to a lot more resources since companies won't really help unless you're a charity and there's a way to get a benefit on both sides.

So help us stay afloat in the interim, so we can do al the things that people say they love us doing.

Thank you

Wow... thank you all so, so much! Only a couple days and almost halfway to our goal.

Thank you to everyone who boosted this, donated, and shared our work. Also thank you to folks who signed up to be new Patreon supporters.

It's humbling, and means that we can keep going. Thank you so much.
