About


What is Donut.js?
Donut.js is a monthly meet-up in Portland, OR focused on community, inclusivity, and creative technology. Every month we host a handful of wonderful talks from a diverse cast of speakers that discuss the intersection of tech and the people who use and make it. In between each talk is time for socializing and eating donuts, and every Donut.js event doubles as a fund-raising and community bridge-building effort for a local nonprofits and the Portland tech community.

Tickets to Donut.js
Tickets to Donut.js are available for $10 to those who can afford it and free of cost to those who are members of an underrepresented or economically disadvantaged group. We donate event proceeds after material costs to local nonprofits focused on doing important social justice work in our community.

How we make money, manage money, and make donations
We make money by selling tickets to our events and getting sponsorship contributions from individuals and companies. Donations to local nonprofit organizations are calculated by taking a portion of our current balance that leaves us with a safe balance and then adding the funds raised from purchased tickets for the events during which that organization was a beneficiary. Additional donations may be made when we have an additional funds to dispense. We aim to maintain around $1,000 in our account to cover event and operating expenses. All expenses are accounted for here on Open Collective.
