Capitalize! The DisCon III Fan Fund – applications open

Capitalize! The DisCon III Fan Fund has been established to provide financial support to fans, staff, and program participants from marginalized communities who wish to attend DisCon III in August 2021. We would like our participants and attendees to be as diverse as fandom itself!

The Fund will be used to support inclusion in two ways. It will offer pay-what-you-can memberships to residents of the Washington, DC area (within 20 miles of the city borders) who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend, and it will provide memberships and travel stipends to fans and participants from groups that have been historically underrepresented within the Worldcon community. If you would like to apply for support from Capitalize!, see details of the Fund and how to apply.

We are grateful to everyone who has so generously contributed to Capitalize! so far. We will continue to need your kindness and support, and if you are able to make a financial gift of any amount, or perhaps to donate an unused membership, please see the details of the Fund and how to give.
