BiCon usually pays for itself through registration and accommodation fees, but sometimes it's a close run thing, and there's always more we want to do. Donations to the equality fund are always most welcome, and all donations that are marked for this will be used to help people attend BiCon and not for anything else. Some other things that donations can help with are:
- Publicity – you could sponsor a flyer, an ad or a stall at a Pride event
- Food – sponsor a cake! Or a crate of bananas (fair trade, of course)
- Merchandise – we hope to have some T-shirts and other merchandise available. You could sponsor some of these, or just wait till they come out and buy lots, but if you're interested in anything in particular do let us know so we know that there's a demand.
Donations in kind
BiCon needs (or can make use of) lots of things, from stationery to any spare marquees you happen to have lying about. We can't guarantee to be able to transport or store them, but if you have decorations for the dance hall, craft materials, board games, a portable printer or laminator or about a mile of purple ribbon, let us know and we'll do our best to think of a use for it.
