At Queen City Anime Con, we are not just a convention but a community. That is why we’ve decided to pledge a portion of our ticket sales to local, non-profit organizations.

We are proud to announce that our 2023 Charitable Partner will once again be Transcend Charlotte!

2021 Greater Charlotte Rise $26 thousand raised

Greater Charlotte Rise (GCR) is a non-profit mutual aid. Mutual aid is an idea and practice that is based on the principles of direct action, cooperation, mutual understanding, and solidarity. Mutual aid is not charity, but the building and continuing of new social relations where people give what they can and get what they need, outside of unjust systems of power.
Our team is focused on helping all members of our community including men, women, children, non-binary, trans-folk, and families. GCR is committed to meeting people where they are. This does not exclude those on a journeys that could potentiality include addiction, sobriety, or returning citizens.
