Donation Levels

We are working on revamping our donation levels and information for 2013 and the 13th Annual Portland Zine Symposium. These still apply for now, but look out for an update soon!

The Portland Zine Symposium will be celebrating its 13th anniversary this year on August 10th and 11th. We are the second-longest running zine fest in the world!

While admission to the zine symposium has always been free and will always remain free, there are lots of costs that come with putting together an event such as this. We really need your help! The prices for renting the space for the symposium were raised exponentially AND we’ve grown exponentially, which means that this year we’ve moved from the PSU Smith Ballroom to The Rufuge.

Due to these factors, this year we’re making a call out to the zine community to help us out. You are more than welcome to donate as little or as much as you’d like, but we have set up several donation levels so you can get a little gift from us in return for your donation!


$5.00 – Thank You Level – Every little bit counts!

$10.00 – Mini-Zine Level – We will send you a sticker from a previous zine symposium.

$15.00 – Quarter-Size Level – You get a sticker and a 1” button from a previous zine symposium

$30.00 – Half-Size Level – You will get a recycled t-shirt from a previous year. These are really random so sizes and colors aren’t guaranteed but we’ll do our best. These are great for modifying or making them into a patch. We’ll also include a sticker and 1” button.

$50.00 – Full-Size Level – We’ll send you a 1” button, sticker, and a blue corn mug from the 8th Annual Portland Zine Symposium made from 100% corn plastic.

$75.00 – Zine Library Level – You will get an assortment of zines all created and donated by the Portland Zine Symposium organizers. We’ll also include a button and a sticker.

$100.00 (and beyond) - ZINE ARCADE Level – You get the assortment of zines from the organizers, the 100% corn plastic mug, a button, and a sticker.

Any donation of $30.00 and above will also be thanked here on our website.
