While the chapter does its best to work with what it already has, it is no secret that Southern Minnesota Alliance LARP events thrive on the donations of their players. Below you can find a basic guide to donations and their compensation, though feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about donations. Please remember to save receipts to ensure we can give you the BEST rate possible!
