The Interpreter Fund 

What is Needed?

We would  like to provide  independent American Sign Language interpreters to float around the conference and provide interpreting services to those participants who request it. This is separate from the sponsored CART services.

This year, we are trying to bring eight awesome volunteers out. They are freelance interpreters willing to donate their time to provide services to DEAF and HH participants.  However, we will help provide for money of services, travel, lodging, and food expenses to bring them out to Las Vegas.  That is where you come in.

How Can I Help?

The interpreters volunteer their time to come out to Las Vegas.  We reimburse their travel and hotel expenses with user generated funds.  Every dollar donated goes to providing our interpreters with the means to make it to Defcon.  


Goal: $12,800


Cost Breakdown   

Cost per interpreter (includes flight, food, and hotel) $1,600


You can also donate via PayPal!

Stretch Goal: 16,000

So this year, we would like to provide additional money for our interpreter stipend.  The goal would be to add an additional $4,000 to allow for more flexibility with costs. 


We will be doing something a bit different with perks and swag this year.  Please use the link to donate.  This space will be updated soon!
