About Caitlin Doughty

Why is Ask a Mortician on Patreon?

Simple answer, deathlings: so we can keep making videos.

Your support – whether it’s $1 or $10 – makes it possible for us to stay independent and true to the Ask a Mortician goal- scrappy, weirdo, death positive videos that don’t shy away from the challenging or bizarre. You help us normalize conversations around death in the way our small team does it best.

There is no way we could do this without you.

Where are my generous death-bux going?

Great question. All proceeds go to fund my Naglfar-style yacht, an Old Norse boat made from the finger and toenails of the dead.

Kidding… if only!

In reality, the money goes three places. First, to the production of the videos. Moving forward almost every new video will involve travel, on location shoots, equipment, research, editing, etc. (Think a Netflix or Discovery-style docuseries, but it’s just a bunch of corpse loving misfits.) Second, money goes to the salaries of our small death video team. And third, each month money goes to supporting and running The Order of the Good Death non-profit, which does legal advocacy and creates resources around death and dying.

How does Patreon work?

Patreon is an easy way to support the people and content you love –“set it and forget it.”

You can choose to pledge a monthly donation or pledge for a whole year up front (which gets you a small discount). You can also pledge custom monthly amounts! $8, $12, $32, the choice is yours.

Of course, you can change your pledge amount or cancel your pledge at any time.

Are there any rewards for pledging?

Are there rewards for pledging? Boy howdy let me tell you!

Every pledge level has accompanying perks. Depending on the pledge level, you can receive access to Patron-only content (vlogs, bonus videos, podcasts), death positive communities, your name in the video credits, and exclusive merchandise.

Even if you cannot pledge anything, just sharing the content we create on YouTube (all of which is free) helps us gain support and spread the death positive message.

THANK YOU from all of us,

5,000 - reached! patrons
