Hello FGCitizens!

The fighting game community has a huge pool of talent, and you only see the tip of the iceberg most of the time. Wouldn't it be great if the players and organizers who don't normally get the spotlight were able to shine? If you and I are on the same page, and I hope we are, then you are excited to support grassroots fighting game content.

By supporting PowerUp Fighters, you are creating a fund that is distributed as follows, after fees:

  • 50% of your pledge goes to PowerUp Freelance, which pays other members of the FGC to create content for the PowerUp website, and keeps that content free for everyone! That content includes: tutorial videos, let's plays, product review, event reflections, community news, appearance fees, and anything else that my fellow creators can imagine. I create content for you to enjoy as well, but I will take no money for myself out of PowerUp Freelance.
  • 30% of your pledge goes to sponsorship of grassroots FGC events around the United States. I will take no money for my own events out of this thirty percent.
  • 10% of your pledge goes to Team PowerUp, to help us travel to events around the world and spread the FGCitizen message!
  • 5% of your pledge goes to a selected video game charity. Each quarter out of the year, PowerUp will select a different video game charity to contribute to.
  • 5% of your pledge goes directly to PowerUp Fighters in order to help us purchase better equipment, pay for marketing expenses, and do other things to improve PowerUp Fighters.
