IA Funding Begging Letter

Postby Wedgy » Thu Jun 20, 2013 6:39 am

IA's funds are running there lowest in around 12mths, nothing unusual, our monthly outgoings are always more than our monthly subscriptions and reliant on one off donations to bolster our accounts for another year.

We are currently down to 3 months funding remaining.

39% of our funding comes via subscription, 61% from one off donations.

We spend the following:
63% Monthly Hosting
1% Software
9% Paypal Fees
8% Charitable Donations
6% Merchandise
4% Advertising
10% Domain registrations


Only Hosting, fees and registrations are still active expenses - others were for IA's startup many years ago and a charitable donation hasn't been made since March 2011 as there has been no surplus in funds to share around.

If anyone wishes to set up a subscription or make a one off donation - it would be very much appreciated.

Again, I would prefer those who have been outstandingly generous in the past to be polite and allow others to contribute first .... (I know you'll most likely ignore me as usual) :P

Many thanks to those who have donated today .... I do have one that I cannot resolve the email address back to an IA member. If you haven't received a PM from me, but have donated today - please PM me.

Many thanks again :ymapplause:

A huge thank you to those who donated to help bolster the IA funds. Not just a thank you from me, but from everyone who continue to enjoy IA :) :ymapplause:
