Our Charity

Each year, Further Confusion selects a different local cause to rally behind. With the support and enthusiasm of our attendees, we spend the weekend fundraising for our chosen cause.

Bill Wilson Logo

This year, FC is proud to partner with the Bill Wilson Center of Santa Clara County.

Bill Wilson Center has been providing services to runaway and homeless youth since 1973. Bill Wilson Center provides services to more than 5,000 children, youth, young adults and families in Santa Clara County through various programs. Additionally, they reach more than 103,000 clients through street outreach and crisis line programs. BWC programs focus on housing, education, counseling, and advocacy. BWC is committed to working with the community to ensure that every youth and young family has access to the range of services needed to grow to be healthy and self-sufficient adults; and that our behavioral health department is available to provide individual and family counseling sessions to a community facing a range of social and emotional challenges.

Qualifying organizations typically must have 501(c)(3) status. We like to make an impact in our local community, so we prefer causes close to home (Northern CA). If you aren't sure whether your nominee qualifies, send us their information anyway. We'll look into it and put their name in the pool. The final charity pick is made at the discretion of each year's convention chair and executive committee, with input welcome from the rest of the staff and the community. Let us know your ideas!
