Our annual event is designed to provide  education, and socialization within our community as well as reach out to the local community to teach in multi disciplinary creative endeavors.  We invite our Guests of Honor from within our community, and we showcase artists from all over the world as well as vendors.   Each year we sponsor a 501(c)3 charity and raise donations to help the charity in their community.  So far our event has raised $38,196 in total charity donations.

History

FurtheMore began as an idea between a few friends in the Maryland anthropomorphics community to start a local convention in Baltimore. The idea was originally started while attending the Furstivus Convention in Philadelphia and the question was posed “Why doesn’t Baltimore have a convention were we can teach and share the diversity of the anthropomorphic community?”

In March 2012, NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association offered to partner with Fur the ‘More to back them as the umbrella non-profit organization. As a result of negotiations, Fur the ‘More became a NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association event, and the primary founder and convention Con-Chair was offered a seat on the Board of Directors as a Trustee.

With Fur the More’s move to Tysons, VA in 2015, Northeast Anthropomorphic was unable to continue as our sponsor.  As such, the chair and directors of FurtheMore organized and founded Mid-Atlantic Anthropomorphic Society (http://www.midanthro.org) and incorporated as a 501(c)7 non-profit organization.

In 2017, the board of directors realizing that much of their purpose and direction was at education of both members of the community, and the public about anthropomorphics while providing a fun and safe event incorporated a successor organization named “Mid-Atlantic Anthropomorphic Association, Inc.” with the goal of obtaining 501(c)3 status.  That status was achieved in April of 2018, and Mid-Atlantic Anthropomorphic Society was dissolved at the end of its fiscal year.
