Countless traditions

Mock Convention is characterized by a few key events to promote our prediction: we jump start the process with Spring Kick-Off in May 2019, celebrate with the best at the Presidential Gala in Fall 2019, and invigorate Lexington with the Convention Parade in February 2020. All of these traditions and more are made possible by your generous donations.

What can you do to help?

Our goal for Mock Convention 2020 is $500,000.

That number represents 46% of the Mock Convention budget, and it's up to us, the student leaders, to raise it.

10% of our overall funds are allocated from the University, 18% comes from Memorabilia sales, plus about 21% generated by Mock Convention endowment interest. The remaining 46% comes from your donations and purchases.

It's a serious goal, and we need your help to reach it. Whether it's $5, $50, or $5,000, every donation brings us one step closer to hosting the best Convention yet. Will you join us?
