per month
Bad Idea Factory is a technical comedy troupe with a corporate structure.  We host and foster ideas that would never have survived on their own in the wild.  You can run your own projects through us, or you can simply support our efforts with a monthly donation that will help pay for stupid URLs, servers, and things like annual taxes.

You can learn more about us, and how to get involved yourself, on our website.

Thank you for thinking face about helping us in our mission!

If you are a BIFFUD associate who wants a biffud.com email address, an official BIFFUD business card design, and access to all of our password vaults, this tier is for you.  


(you must be a BIFFUD associate in order to get the benefits of this tier)

Fund a Money Fight
$10 or more per month
We will convert all money donated under this tier into pennies, and arrange a corporate money fight where we throw handfuls of coins at each other.  Think laser tag but a little heavier.
"HURRY UP ALREADY!"
$12 or more per month
Hold someone's feet to the fire.  This tier is a virtual kick in the pants for a specific project.  When you fund this tier you should pick a project (or set of projects) to allocate the money to.
Invite us Not to Keynote your Conference
$15 or more per month
With your pledge, Bad Idea Factory's distinguished Corporate  Overlords will refrain from speaking at your conference or event. Your pledge covers our honorarium as well as any travel that will not occur.
Honorary Corporate Overlord
$25 or more per month
You get to pretend to be a corporate overlord.  You can tell all your friends about it.  Host your own plotting sessions!
Essence of The Popular One
$50 or more per month
Become an official Editor on our facebook page.  This gives you the power to post as Bad Idea Factory, delete and edit content, and really do anything you want except kick other editors off.  Help us turn our corner of Facebook into a collective hellscape.

NOTE: all content posted in our name must be chaotic-good, neutral-good, or chaotic-neutral.
Forced Mario Party
$100 or more per month
Make Bad Idea Factory associates play and live stream Mario Party for an hour.  This is a solid way to make us suffer.
Make us Genuinely Listen to You
$200 or more per month
Someone will focus on the things you have to say, listening intently, nodding their head, occasionally vocalizing acknowledgement of the sound being generated by your mouth.  Followup questions will probably be asked, if appropriate.  You will feel witnessed and understood.
Run a Plotting Session
$500 or more per month only 12 left
Have you ever wanted to chair a corporate meeting?  Well, here's your chance.  Usurp the Overmind and take control of one of our monthly plotting sessions.  Convince us to vote on ridiculous things.  Steal our corporate secrets.  Run the company into the ground.  


We probably have to update our bylaws to do this, but whatever.  If you fund this, we'll make it happen.

Halt Our Operations
$15,000 or more per month
For as long as your pledge is in effect, Bad Idea Factory will cease operations.
Goals
$24 of $350 per month
"Financially support a monthly bad idea" — when we approve a bad idea we also support it with cold hard cash.  This allows us to make people feel guilty until they deliver on it.
