Geek Support

Free Admission provides grants for free admission to anime conventions in the Midwest for organizations that support disadvantaged young people. We want to give more young people the opportunity to find support for their creativity and nerdiness.

Event Grants
We sometimes may be able to give small grants to events supporting geeks and nerds. Any event that shows a massive commitment to supporting reading, learning, and science, is potentially eligible for a Ryan Kopf nerd event grant.

Group Discounts
Groups who aren't necessarily disadvantaged, but could use a discount as it supports their purpose or otherwise educational-ness, can often get group discounts on admission to our certain geeky events.

The total value of our given support is about $2,000 per year.
