Donate to Tabletop Gaymers 2018-03-09T17:55:04+00:00

Tabletop Gaymers Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity, incorporated in the State of Iowa. Donors can deduct contributions they make under the IRS Code Section 170. We rely heavily on monetary and in-kind donations for most of our operations. Donations are welcome from individuals, organizations, and corporations who are LGBTQ+ supportive.

Donations are used to purchase swag and promotional material, such as GAYMER and ALLY Badge Ribbons, which are given to participants at conventions and events free of charge; support programs like our new Gayme Night; pay honorariums for speakers, such as Queer as a 3-Sided Die; and other expenses such as office materials, mailers, postage, web hosting fees, software licensing, etc. Although we are considering offering a grant to individuals who volunteer their time, none of the funds are ever used to pay wages or compensation to any of the Board of Directors of Tabletop Gaymers Inc.

We make the donations we receive and our expenses public, available upon request. To request our complete records, please contact us. To view a list of public donors, please visit our sponsors page.

If you would like to donate, please consider becoming a Sustaining Donor or with a one-time donation through one of the following means.

PayPal Giving Fund

PayPal Giving Fund

PayPal Giving Fund offers certified nonprofits the ability to collect donations without any processing fees. Donations sent through this process will have the largest impact as 100% of the funds are received by the organization. For donors, they will automatically send you the necessary documentation to claim your donation as a tax-deduction. This is our preferred method of receiving donations (albeit the least exciting.)

GoFundMe Certified Charity

GoFundMe is great for specific campaigns, such as our first campaign for GAYMER/ALLY Badge Ribbons. They provide great resources for campaign managers and are wildly popular. However, they charge a (7.9% + 0.30) fee, so if you’d like to give more, donate directly through the PayPal Giving Fund. Since the donations are processed through PayPal Giving Fund, you will also receive the same email documentation to claim your donation as a tax-deduction. Our current campaigns are:

Dream Check

Bank Check
