Fundraising update

I've made two recent updates to GoFundMe, but due to a disconnect between what I understand from their help and what actually happened, they are not visible there. I promised people a financial accounting, so I'm posting it here as well.

February 4 update

I have now received all related bills and can report final numbers for the GoFundMe campaign.

GoFundMe takes a fee of 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction, as described in their help.


GoFundMe, less fees24,450.14
Outside donations229.03


Donation refund (misunderstanding with one donor) 100.00
Legal services16,582.50

The difference, $7,996.67, will be donated to The Trevor Project. When I receive a receipt I'll post it here.

February 13 update

The Trevor Project has not yet processed the check I sent last week, but they have confirmed that they will send me a publishable receipt when they do, which I expect to be soon. I will post that at If you want me to notify you when that happens, email me at

Thank you everybody for your support!
