Today is #GIVINGTUESDAY at BurlyCon
Now in its fifth year “Giving Tuesday” has become a global movement celebrating giving and philanthropy. In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, Burlycon is launching our end of year giving platform, which includes our 2016-17 Membership Campaign, Burlycon 2017 Sponsorship and BurlyBenefactor Push!

As a non-profit organization, BurlyCon relies heavily on your support to fulfill our mission to provide “community-oriented professional growth and educational organization for burlesque performers, producers, fans, and aficionados.” In addition to supporting our commitment to providing an affordable opportunity for performers of all levels to learn, grow, and develop their skills, BurlyConwill use membership funds to:Be a part of the global BurlyCon burlesque community
- Preserve your heritage by funding opportunities to learn directly from the legends
- Shape the future of burlesque through burlesque education and community
- Support your peers by keeping costs low for attendance at the annual conference
- Show your appreciation for the hundreds of volunteers who make BurlyCon possible
- Invest in programs you value
In 2016 we were able to create an international presenter travel budget and hire a Fundraising Director.
In 2017 your contributions will help us to:
□ Expand our Community Relations Team, focusing on year-round community building communication and caucuses.
□ Update our website to make it more user-friendly and accessible
□ Develop a track for “seasoned performers” at BurlyCon 2017
□ Plan our 10th Anniversary Celebrations
Your donation will help us to do that, and more.
In just under a year, BurlyCon will reach a milestone, our 10th Anniversary. Our goal is to double our memberships, both new and renewing, to 500 members this year.
