avatar_12ff317076a9_128So this is the first year that #INeedDiverseGames has been part of the GDC Scholarship program! We got 25 all access passes to the Game Developer Conference March 14 – 18, 2016 in San Francisco, US.


Our Goal is $26,500, which includes a bit of buffer for fees, etc.

While we’re ecstatic to be a part of this program, we are but a wee organization that cannot give monetary support to our All Access Pass recipients to travel to and from the conference.  Ideally we’d like to offer $500 – $1000 per recipient travel stipends to ease the cost burden going to San Francisco for a week long conference will entail.

All funds raised will go to our recipients based upon needs stated on the scholarship application. We’re doing this fundraiser since we don’t yet have sponsorships for our organization and don’t want pass recipients to miss out if travel funding is a deal breaker.

So we humbly ask you to help us to help our community by making sure all of our receipients get a chance to attend the Game Developers Conference. We’ve added a bit of a cushion to account for fees that IndieGoGo will take out to process the funding etc. We’re going to open a business checking account with our January patreon funds so this money will not go through any one member of #INeedDiverseGames personal bank account either.
