We’ve launched an open call to the community for donations to support our Camp Honoraria Program, the first (and to our knowledge, only) funding effort dedicated to providing financial support for burner camps and the interactivity, art, and educational offerings they bring to the playa.
We’re now facing more than two years of no Burning Man at Black Rock City, and camps need our help now more than ever. Many camps haven’t been able to conduct their normal fundraising efforts for two years. Funds are running low, and some camps are having to sell off key pieces of their infrastructure to make ends meet. We hope to throw a lifeline to as many of these camps as possible.
To donate, please click the link below. If you would like to donate using a different method than what’s available, please Contact Us directly. Please note: a generous burner is currently matching donations on a 1:1 basis. Every dollar you donate to camps is doubled!
About Our Tax Status
Burner Network is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with federal tax ID number (EIN) of 86-2278779, and donations to us are tax deductible for qualifying donors. ( Please check with your tax preparer to confirm whether your donation is tax deductible.)
You can confirm our tax status by using the Internal Revenue Service’s online Tax Exempt Organization Search Tool here.
Donations less than $250 do not require a receipt for your personal tax deductions as your bank record of the transaction suffices for the IRS, but nonetheless we are happy to provide one if you would like. Please Contact Us to let us know you would like a receipt.
Anyone donating $250 or more does need a receipt, and we will email these out as a batch by the end of the year.
How Much of Your Donation Goes to Camps?
Burner Network has a very lean cost structure. Everyone’s an uncompensated volunteer, and a vast majority of our efforts are conducted online. Other non-profits have also generously supported us with in-kind donations for web hosting and the like. This means, save approximately $350 in organizational expenses in 2021 and online credit card processing fees we’re assessed, every dollar you donate to Burner Network goes to camps.
