Our 2016 conference was so successful, with such a large number of presenters and attendees, that Southern Oregon University has determined that it has grown from a "campus/student" event to a "community event." This means that instead of offering the conference room free of charge for the conference, we will now be charged $1,100 a day for the two-day event, for total of $2,200. We will also need to provide our own event insurance, and cover costs of promotion and the afterparty at Jackson Wellsprings. We will need to raise a bare minimum of $3,000 for 2017, and $4,000-$5,000 would be even better.
In addition to the cost of the conference room, we also like to be able to offer some of our speakers who are traveling in from out-of-state or out-of-country small honorariums for their contributions to the conference.
If you would like to help us cover our costs for the 2017 conference so that we can continue to make this conference free and open to the public at no direct charge as we have done for 2014-2016, then please show your support with a donation via Paypal. Most similar events charge in excess of over $100 to attend. Here, we want to keep it free, and also have the all the talks and presentations available for free on The Entheogenic Evolution Podcast. The support of generous donors is vital to making this happen.
Thank you for your generous support!
