Waygate Foundation

Waygate Foundation

Uniting fantasy fandoms in charity

From 2011 to 2021, Waygate Foundation existed to connect fantasy authors and their fandoms in philanthropy.

During that time we raised over $30,000 to support charities in the US and globally.

Our beneficiaries included:

  • Worldbuilders
  • Wounded Warrior Project
  • Child’s Play
  • Room to Read
  • Bring Change 2 Mind
  • Human Rights Watch
  • Mercy Medical Angels
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • International Fund for Animal Welfare
  • Brain and Behavior Research Foundation
  • Lightweaver Foundation
  • Purple Heart Homes
Board of Director Harriet McDougal at JordanCon

Board of Director Wilson Grooms

In memory of Wilson Grooms

Upon Waygate’s dissolution, Waygate made a donation to Purple Heart Homes in memory of Wilson Grooms. Wilson was a permanent member of Waygate’s Board of Directors and longtime friend and advocate for Waygate as well as the Wheel of Time fandom, from which Waygate began.

If you are looking to connect to charities or Wheel of Time communities, we recommend:

  • JordanCon
  • TarValon.Net
  • Dragonmount
  • Lightweavers Foundation
  • Worldbuilders

Tai’shar Waygate!
