or the wiki.  This option is especially helpful, as it avoids the nearly 3% fees incurred on donations made by Paypal or credit card.

How our funds are used

Donated funds will be used for the following:

  • server costs ($99.00 monthly as of Apr 2022)
  • domain registrar costs (about $300 every five years, last paid in July 2020)
  • email hosting costs (for registration procedure and to verify us to others)
  • unavoidable business expenses such as Paypal fees

All spending will be shown on the annual financial report.

We operate like a non-profit with no employees. There are no salaries, although we've occasionally had paid an expert temporarily to help with technology. See our financial report.

If in the future we decide to shut down, any leftover funds will be donated to the Internet Archive.
