The time has come to sign on several dotted lines and enter into contractual agreements for Realm Makers: 2014, and with contracts go deposits. Although much of the conference is run on love and enthusiasm, neither the venue nor the insurance provider can take them as payment. Go figure.

In order to make the necessary deposits on the venue and associated insurance, Realm Makers needs to raise donor revenue

before November 27th.

Insurance_contract Sponsorship opportunities are open to businesses and individuals, and any amount you can give will bring us closer to meeting our initial financial needs for the conference.

If you wish to help make the 2nd Annual Realm Makers conference a success, please go to the Realm Makers:2014 Donation Page and use the PayPal button there. Once you’ve donated, please email Becky at info[at]faithandfantasyalliance[dot]com and make me aware of the level of giving at which you have donated so we can facilitate the perks you should receive for your donor level. Of you’d rather forgo any perks and just give, that’s OK too.

No pressure, but without donor contributions by the end of the month, the conference becomes vulnerable to, well, not happening.

OK, awkward plea aside, here are some tiers of giving for you to consider:
