    It’s not precisely the same situation, having more involvement from the media creators, but Child’s Play is basically a fandom charity

    The HP Alliance has been a 501c3 for many years – but this is still very wonderful!!

    It’s 20% more tax-deductible!

    Thank you, I’ll be here all week with my brony kids egging me on.

    Many conventions are 501(c)(3), but not public charities, which requires a higher bar. And we didn’t emerge out of Reddit, but out of the IndieGoGo fundraiser for the advertisement.


  8. They are wrong as far as 501(c)(3)s go – HPEF conventions are that, and was also an educational 501(c)(3). Archive of Our Own also is a registered nonprofit.

    Not the first, by far, but still a great thing.

    Agreed, the Harry Potter folks got there first, and our hats are off to them. Our huge, pony-head-capable hats…
