Each year since 21014, one of the Keynote Speakers nominates a charity for the Conference to support. Attendees, speakers, and fans can donate to the charity in a number of ways: silent auction, baked goods, monetary contributions, or teeshirt sales. All together we have raised almost $5000 for the various charities, and we're just getting started! (If you are so moved, please find links below to help out our charities!)
American Civil Liberties Union (2018)
For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
Full FLood Endowment Fund (2018)
The Full Flood Endowment Fund was established with proceeds from the benefit screening of the film On the Farm, at Vancity Theatre in Vancouver in July 2016. The objective for the fund is to support charities and qualified organizations that seek to raise awareness and enhance the lives of children and families of missing and murdered women.
Proceeds earned by the screenings of the film On the Farm will be added to this fund and other contributions will be sought.
We appreciate your donation to the Full Flood Endowment Fund!
Harry Potter Alliance (2017)
In 2017 we raised over $1800 for the Harry Potter Alliance. The Alliance is changing the world by making activism accessible through the power of story. Since 2005, they’ve engaged millions of fans through our work for equality, human rights, and literacy.
Chimp Haven (2016)
In 2016, Brannon Braga nominated Chimp Haven, an organization dedicated to providing and promoting the best care of sanctuary chimpanzees and inspiring action for the species worldwide. We raised over $1200 to help.
Random Acts (2015)
In 2015, our Keynote speaker Robbie Thompson nominated Random Acts as our charity. Random Acts inspires many amazing things around the world every day — from small acts of kindness, such as inspiring someone to buy a stranger a cup of coffee, to much bigger acts of kindness like building a school in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. All of these acts of kindness contribute to a bigger story, a message that Random Acts embodies and promotes — that you too can conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time. We raised $1300 for Random Acts.
