At their March 14, 2004 Board of Directors Meeting, San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, Inc., issued several grants to various groups and individuals for development and furtherance of science fiction and fantasy activities.

Vegas Science Fiction Association: $750 to VegaCon I to fund the logistics costs of the convention’s Art Show, including rental, transportation, and set-up of art show display flats. For more information about VegaCon, see <http://www.vegacon.org/>.

Ad Hoc Worldcon Promotional Committee: $500 to fund portions of a promotional program to raise overall awareness of the World Science Fiction Convention (as opposed to the individual Worldcons, which tend to promote themselves as stand-alone events).

SFSFC Inc. was the parent non-profit corporation of ConJose, the 2002 Worldcon, and of ConFrancisco, the 1993 Worldcon. Most of the these grants were funded from ConJose surplus funds. As required by World Science Fiction Society rules, SFSFC will submit an accounting of ConJose finances, including disposition of surplus funds, to the 2004 WSFS Business Meeting.
