About the Furrydelphia Company and Convention
Furrydelphia exists to unite the members of the furry fandom in an annual weekend-long convention. We strive to achieve the following goals:
To promote a positive image of the furry fandom within the public eye.
To encourage the sharing of artwork and ideas, the participation in panels and skill-building sessions, and the creation of new connections and memories for members of and all those interested in the fandom.
To host a local charitable organization, with the intention of raising funds and awareness for that organization.
Furrydelphia is a NON-PROFIT event and organization. NONE of our earnings will ever be given to any individuals for personal profit. We are all in this to benefit the community, not ourselves.
Our convention is owned and operated by Furrydelphia, Inc., a 501c3 charitable organization.
