FAQ

    • What is Mid-Atlantic Anthropomorphic Association, Inc.?
      MidAnthro is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting artistic and educational endeavors in multiple media genre including traditional art, performance art, crafting, and media creation.  We promote community and social responsibility both within the furry community as well as the general community.  More details can be found under our mission statement.

 

    • What do you do / sell / have that furthers your mission?
      We hold small to large scale events that are designed to bring together members of the anthropomorphic community and the public to learn and grow.  Our events range from social networking, educational and fund-raising events to our annual 3 day conference where we host educational panels, charity events, and social/entertainment panels.  We feature and promote the artists, authors, and other craftsman in our community.  We invite the public to participate in our events to learn more about our community and its vibrant and diverse background.  We sponsor charitable organizations and help to raise funds to further their causes, in particular those that further the welfare of animals and the education and assistance of people.  At our events we have organizational materials available for purchase to help fund our organization such as T-Shirts, Hats, and other memorabilia.

 

    • Wow!  This is really cool.  Can I donate to your organization?
      Absolutely!  We welcome the support of anyone who shares our views of a creative and diverse community and would like to help further our mission and goals.

 

    • Are my donations tax deductible?
      As of Oct 12, 2017 we sadly have to say that any donations are NOT tax deductible at this time.  We are only a Virginia Non-Profit organization.  However, we are in the process of applying for a designation and hope to be able to offer a more positive response in the future.  Any donations made at our events to specifically benefit the charitable organizations we support are considered to be donated directly to that charity, and a receipt from them can be provided upon request.  In all cases, please be sure to consult your tax professional for appropriate guidance.

 

    • Ok, well, I want to donate anyway.  Wheres your donation page?
      We are working on putting a donation page and an organizational store online in the future.  In the meantime, the best way to donate is to come to one of our events where you can donate directly to us, or to our sponsored charity for that event.  We also will happily welcome you to donate your time to help us make our events and programs a success.

 

    • What events do you currently have?
      Our primary event is our 3-day annual conference called “Fur the ‘More”, where members of our community come from all over the world to meet, network, share ideas, learn, and educate each other.  You can find information on this event by going to http://www.furthemore.org Our first fund-raising event is Mid-Atlantic Fur-B-Que and happens each year in the fall.  This is a social event to help fund-raise for our organization and usually involves lots of food, fun, and socializing.   Watch our social media feeds for information about this event.

 

    • I signed up for one of your events, but now I can’t or don’t want to go.  How do I get my money back/refund?
      Our events are planned over a year in advance, and so in general any funds that come in to register for that event are immediately allocated to the event.  Due to this, it is not possible to refund your registration.  If you are unable to attend the event you registered for, we will gladly offer to transfer that registration to the following year’s event.  This transfer can only happen once.  If you are unable to attend again, we will not be able to transfer the value forward a second time.If you purchased organizational materials and have found a defect, or the size is wrong, please see us during the event you purchased it at to exchange it for a new item.  Once the event is over, however, any exchanges are limited by available supplies.  As above, we will not be able to refund the purchase amount.  All requests for refund or exchange are considered on a case-by-case basis and not guaranteed.
