I've finally come to my senses and realized I really should support BGG.
Is there any benefit to waiting for the year-end support drive (do they still do that?), or should I just send in my money now?

They usually do it, and if you wait, I think you get bonus GG if you do it during the drive.

In previous years everyone who has supported in that year gets the bonus GG.

However, there are occasionally some giveaways by community members for new supporters -

You'll get the geekgold for donating and the yearly bonus, no matter when you donate. People who donate during the drive increase the amount of the geekgold bonus we all get.

I think I may wait then, since it will only be a few weeks. Not that it makes that big of a difference either way (donating now or donating later, as long as I donate. haha).

I'm also waiting for the support drive. Does it typically begin in December?

Depending on how much you donate, if you donate now you at least get the benefit of not having to see the ads, if that's important to you.

The minimum donation to get the geek gold bonus is $15.oo US. I believe you would be rewarded the geek gold as long as it is done before the end of the year.

Yeah, I always wait for the support drive too. I don't care about having the patron badge early, so there's pretty much no reason for me to support early.

Actually, you garner a per $$$-USD 'contributed' ALL year `round, while yes, you also are eligible for becoming a "supporter" during then in December, along with entering them various "Contests" held at the time, or additional *BONUS*. Some required anyone being a $25-'supporter' AND you also get "Block Ads" with that or more amounts.
