Earlier this year we raised money to bring one of our Campbell Nominees to the Hugos and were met with astounding support! Now, we want to offer that same opportunity to the other WorldCon Awards Finalists so that they can participate in the celebration of their work.  

Much like the previous fundraiser, we want to raise money for:
*Plane tickets
*Hotel stays
*WorldCon memberships
*Per diem
*Ceremony attire rental
*Other potential costs, based on individual needs

Thankfully, we have a strong community that is dedicated to celebrating authors, their work, and these awards. We want to hear from the folks we're voting for, and they should be able to attend their own party!

What happens if we raise more?
​That money will go towards an ongoing  fund dedicated to defraying the costs for future WorldCon Finalists.

Details of cost estimates
*$1000 hotel room
*$75 per day per diem 
*$200 for Rent the Runway
*The oh-shit-I-forgot fund

Again, we thank you for your continued and overwhelming support. Your donations will help alleviate the financial burden of attending these events, and will allow finalists to focus on the ceremonies that are meant to honor them and their exemplary works. 

The Speculative Literature Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 org, is serving as our fiscal sponsor so that your contribution is tax-deductible in the U.S.  They'll collect funds and ensure they're disbursed to recipients. 

Note: This fundraiser is not officially sponsored by WorldCon.
