Greetings fellow exmos!
Although it's been less than a year since our last fund raiser, it's time to do it again. Why? We didn't get quite enough last time to run the site for a year. We hate to ask for money, but the cost realities of hosting, bandwidth, etc. require us to occasionally ask for donations. Our last one was in July of 2020 and our account at the ISP is already depleted.
The site costs about $2500/year to operate, and our goal is to raise two years worth of funding or $5000.
*** As an incentive *** anyone who donates $1000 or more will receive an original artwork created by CZ himself. I don't know what form that will take yet, but I will do my best not to disappoint. Note: No one took advantage of this amazing offer last time, so this year you could be the first!
Please use the Paypal donation button you can see by scrolling to the bottom of the home page: https://www.exmormon.org
You can use a credit card or your Paypal account (if you have one). If you want to pay by check or money order, you can send that directly to our ISP:https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=PaRBJZdCEuRKwYBH1Amn-jombiMmOL6Uvqaoyh1gHrtAto3Z60dooTmRDxa1lCt0n9T84m&country.x=US&locale.x=US
P.O. Box 2605, Cleveland, TN, 37320
Make sure to write "For exmormon.org" in the memo field so that they know to credit it to us.
No one is required to donate. This is strictly voluntary and we're not going to push anyone into doing it. If you're broke, then don't worry about giving your "widow's mite". The site does need money, but not badly enough to harm a donor. However, if you do have the money and you feel that the world is better with exmormon.org up and running, then a donation would be greatly appreciated. If you happen to be feeling flush, dig deep! Remember that we didn't even get enough for the entire year last time and we don't want to repeat that situation.
Imagine how the community here has helped you through the Covid crisis. Plus, exmormon.org is cheaper than Starbucks and waaaay cheaper then tithing. And think of the leverage your donations here enable against the church! How many dollars of tithing money has Exmormon.org deprived Mormonism of for every dollar donated here? I don't know, but it's a fun thing to think about.
Remember that no one in our administrative/moderator cadre gets paid for their work. We are strictly volunteers. All of the donated money goes to paying expenses involved in running the site.
We will post an anonymized list of donations as they come in. We will also pull down this request as soon as we have enough money for the coming year.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
CZ (ever grateful admin)
