2018 Pitch Wars Operational Costs

$3,985 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 126 people in 4 months
Pitch Wars is a mentoring organization where established writers and publishing professionals help emerging writers edit their book and prepare for publishing success. Find out more about Pitch Wars at www.pitchwars.org.

All of our mentors and leadership are unpaid volunteers and we seek out every opportunity to reduce costs, but some financial needs are unavoidable due to the size of our Pitch Wars community. This money is for server costs, non-profit registration fees, professional contractors (people with specialized skills when we can't find volunteers), and miscellaneous fees and taxes. Any additional and unused funds will go toward additional programming and running future Pitch Wars events, i.e. providing value to emerging writers.

Your donation allows us to:
- Keep the www.pitchwars.org website online as a resource for all Pitch Wars participants and emerging writers
- Upgrade servers so the website does not crash at high-traffic times, such as the submission period
- Register as a non-profit and pay all associated fees
- Keep Pitch Wars free to all who want to participate (We will never charge an entry fee, but we may need to scale down if fundraising goals aren't met)

We greatly appreciate your donation and promise to do our absolute best to be good stewards of your money and your trust.

We are in the process of becoming a non-profit, so donations are not currently tax deductible.
