Thanks to our amazing supporters, New Melbourne Browncoats have formed a wonderful community of Joss Whedon fans across Victoria and Australia and raised thousands of dollars for charity. As a non-profit, we rely on the kindness of strangers to help us meet our goals of providing a social scene for Browncoats and raising much needed funds for charity. The generous folks below have supported us in a vast number of ways, including donating collectables (which we use to raise money for charity through auctions, raffles and community building), providing gratis or discounted goods and services, and donating equipment and supplies.
If you’d like to become a Supporter and lend us a helping hand, you can
