Monetizing My Madness II: another PACE Fundraiser

Postby AKKOLADE » Sun Oct 15, 2017 3:44 pm

I'm doing again what I did last year, where I launched a fundraiser for PACE based off of how many hours I spent ranking teams. Quoting parts from last year's announcement that are still relevant:

What I'm asking you to do is make a pledge on a per-hour basis to PACE's Outreach Fund. For each hour I work on the rankings, you make a donation. Since I've been a poor college student/graduate before, I really don't care how much you pledge (though we probably should agree that a penny per hour is a reasonable minimum).

(F)eel free to commit to a flat amount, either as a fail safe or else as an alternative to a per-hour basis

I'll post a public list of everyone who's pledged. If you'd prefer to stay anonymous, you can do so.

It'll be each individual's responsibility to make good on their donation at the end of the year. If you fail to donate what you pledged, I won't refrain from shaming you.


Since I'm doing a Patreon this year, I should clarify that some work I'm doing will not count toward this. This includes any work I do for podcasts or other work exclusively for Patreon subscribers. If you have to choose between doing the Patreon or donating to PACE, I would honestly prefer you do the donation to PACE.

Last year I put in 98 hours of work, which lead to $2379 donated to PACE's Outreach Fund. I'm hoping to break at least $3000 this year.

To sign up, post in this thread or email me at fredmorlan@gmail.com.

As a reminder: PACE is a 501(c)(3)! Your donations are tax deductible!
