The Stone Hill Science Fiction Association (and by extension, their conventions) is a non-profit organization. All of the workers at the conventions are unpaid volunteers that do this out of a love of the genre. This generosity also extends to the groups that we support.
Throughout the years, the convention has helped raise money for the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Wildlife Rescue, Francis House and others. Every other month, Florida Blood Services brings a Mobile out to take blood donations. FBS records don't go back as far as 1982, but we've donated somewhere over 100 gallons of blood in the past three decades!
Kids & Canines
Currently, we are working to raise funds for Kids & Canines. This is a Hillsborough County Schools Program that uses "At-Risk" students to train assistance dogs for the disabled. The kids work with the dogs and learn discipline, patience and responsibility. Afterward, the trained dogs are matched up with a disabled person who can benefit from the extra "hands".

All of the proceeds from our Charity Auction will go to Kids & Canines, as well as a donation from Stone Hill itself.
The Francis House
Francis House is a day respite center for people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. It is the only respite program of its kind in the tri-city area of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. It's a safe place for people to come and experience a positive environment that is conducive to helping the individual help themsef. All services are free and confidential.
Stone Hill donates to them every Christmas from our treasury, and the pockets of members. Also, the proceeds from the auctions at ConGames and Vidcon are donated too.
"Please be generous in helping us this year. Where we can be lucky enough to spend money on our hobbies; others need help just to survive. Thank you for your support."
