Thank you so much for your support of The Geek Initiative.

The Geek Initiative is an online community celebrating women in geek culture. We've been online since 2013 and inhabit a centralized website and a network of Facebook communities. This Patreon is operated by Tara M. Clapper, TGI's founder and publisher. Its purpose is to establish and maintain TGI as an LLC, pay all standard web operating costs, and most importantly, compensate the contributors who make our community what it is.  

Beyond maintaining these regular costs, we have recently expanded into game development, publication, and production (running LARPs), and aim to publish books and guides for our audience, as well as attend more conventions as press and panelists.

After crowdfunding for expenses twice (including a hack recovery), we're hoping to create a more sustainable venture through Patreon's structure.

If you'd like to make a one-time donation instead of a monthly contribution, please go here. You're still entitled to one of the rewards if you wish, or you can select from the single-sale services, such as game design consultation. If you'd like a reward, just include a note indicating what you'd like!
