BurlyCon Gift Brigade

BurlyCon Gift Brigade 2018

Become a Gifter!

Any person or organization (called a Gifter) can buy a Weekend Pass to BurlyCon to give away. You can give this Pass as a gift, award, or prize to another person (called an Awardee). Gifters purchase the pass before they give it away. There is no charge to change the name of the Pass once the Awardee is decided.

Gifters may call these weekend passes “Awards”, “Prizes,” or “Gifts”. BurlyCon reserves the word “Scholarship” so we don’t confuse the giving of these Gift Passes with the granting of official, BurlyCon-sanctioned Scholarships.

As a Gifter you need to register the gift with BurlyCon. Once you do that, your name is included in our website and printed program as a member of the BurlyCon Gift Brigade! Then you can also have permission to use the BurlyCon Gift Brigade graphic in any of your print or online media.

Gifters need to plan ahead! To give a Gift pass, you’ll buy it for $200 (yep, just $200 – no extra name change fee!) through the end of the EarlyBird price level (usually in late March). If you decide to participate in the Gift Brigade later in the year, contact us to see if your gift is eligible. To become a part of the Gift Brigade, email spons@burlycon.org to register today!


  • Gift Brigade passes are NOT tax deductible. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation towards the BurlyCon Scholarship program CLICK HERE.
  • The name of your Awardee can be public or confidential, whatever you both decide. Let us know if you want us to publish their name!
  • You can use your BurlyCon Gift Brigade graphic anywhere for the year that you are a BurlyCon Gift Brigade member.
  • You CANNOT use any other BurlyCon logo or graphic! At all! For anything!
  • The Gift Brigade program is not a way to shirk the name change fee. Please don’t try it! Thanks!
