Your contribution is greatly appreciated and is fully tax deductible.

In 2010, The Stranger combined forces with Shunpike, providing The Genius Awards with a non-profit umbrella for individual and corporate donations. This Genius Foundation is accepting donations for all five Genius Awards. Every donation, large or small, will keep funding alive for these outstanding artists who challenge their mediums and raise the bar for their peers by rewarding them for their excellence and creative innovation.
