PayPal donations from February 1st through March 31st are considered "Marchesa" donations.
Marchesa donations will be used to support the Marchesa 2021 event and are subject to the following breakdown:
50% is donated directly to Gamers Helping Gamers, a 501(c)(3) registered charity. You can read about them in the New York Times here.
Up to $5,000, GHG donations are being matched entirely by Alan from Mental Misplay.
40% is directly contributed to the Marchesa 2021 Prize Pool.
10% is used to cover PayPal fees and support our operations.
For example, if you donate $10 via PayPal, it results in:
$10 to Gamers Helping Gamers
$4 to the prize pool
$1 to us
Donations received after March 31st will be considered general donations to support us directly.
If you want to support Monarch directly, we highly recommend subscribing to our Patreon.
Patreon gives us the resources we need to continue to produce events like this. If you want to see more from Monarch, that's the way to go!
If you would like to donate specifically to us via PayPal during the Marchesa donation time period, make a note during your donation that you do not want your donation contributed to the Marchesa fund.
