Ela Conf is run by a community of organizers and volunteers who all donate their time and resources to the event year round. We collected numbers and stats from our 2015 and 2016 events and started collecting this year's data to share our growth, how we allocated funds, and a closer look into what goes into Ela Conf.
After Ela Conf 2015, we donated all profits to Girl Develop It. We didn't plan financially for 2016, which meant we started with $0 again. As a result, we've decided to put the profit toward seed money for Ela Conf 2017. This seed money means that we have a little more independence and flexibility in booking a venue and getting the planning process started. We hope to make 2017 even bigger and to make a sizable donation to Girl Develop It once again.
