Sponsors

HerdCon is always in search of donors and partnerships to help us provide a unique, entertaining, and educational experience to all.  Our volunteers work hard to provide a memorable experience on limited funding.  Our goal for 2023 will be to continue offering FREE ADMISSION to everyone, as well as bringing in some special guests or events.  If possible, we would like to be able to expand to a 2 day event as well.  All of these things require the donation of funds and time.

If you wish to donate, we have some set donation levels available online currently.  Don’t see a donation amount that meets your budget, email us at herdcon@marshall.edu or mail a check to us at:
