Tabletop Gaymers is a nonprofit organization. We rely entirely on monetary and in-kind donations for our funding. 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. We have no paid staff and none of the funds are ever used to compensate our directors.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity, donations made to Tabletop Gaymers may be deducted in the U.S. as per the IRS Code Section 170.
Regardless of how or how much you donate, we appreciate your contribution.

CrowdRise Certified Charity – Individual Donations
CrowdRise is our choice for individual donor contributions. You can help Tabletop Gaymers both by contributing and by helping us promote our campaigns. Want to make a big impact? You can even run a campaign on our behalf! 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. You can make a donation directly or to one of our campaigns.
PayPal Giving Fund – Corporate Donations
For corporate and large donations ($100+) we ask that you use our PayPal Giving Fund as there are no processing fees. So why don’t we use it for all donations? Well, it lacks a lot of the features we use to receive notices, track donations, and communicate with donors. The end result is a much more manual process that isn’t realistic for our typical donations. If you make your donation this way, PLEASE DO NOT SELECT ANONYMOUS. If you do, we will receive the donation, but we will not receive any information about you, the donor. We will have no way of verifying your donation, contacting you to say Thank You, or sending you donor rewards.
