When you register, you will notice that the registration form asks you to allocate what proportion of your event profits will be donated to Equality Now and any other charities.

Donation Proportions
At least 75% of proceeds must be donated to Equality Now.
The other 25% or less may be donated to whatever worthy charities the local organizer/Browncoat group running the event deems worthy. (So that 25% or less can go to one or be split however among the other charities.)

Choosing other Charities for 25% or less
Any charities you choose to donate proceeds to must be registered charities (eg. 501(c)3 registered if in the USA, etc). Ideally, any other charities chosen should align with the goals and ideals of Equality Now (eg. advocate non-violence and equality).

The charity must also agree to be a recipient charity before your event runs. You may need to contact the charity to confirm use of their name in association with your fundraising event.

Separate fundraising activities
Please note this does not include money raised at the event via a separate donation button/donation box, or from a gathering of can goods or other items donated toward a particular charity, money raised from silent auction items purchased for the benefit of the other charities etc. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Hopefully this information will make things easier to plan your events.
