Exclamation FUNDRAISING time again!!
Hey guys, it's been 3 years since we had to do this! Can you believe it?

Our hosting contract is due again. $378 for 36 months of hosting, and $26.95 for our annual domain and HackAlert renewals.

Any donations you guys might want to throw in to keep the board going would be appreciated by all. And NO funds raised will go toward anything other than board expenses outlined above.

We use the following info:

Paypal (link here) and use the email scrappinchatadmin@gmail.com


I looked at the prior fundraising topic and I believe your paypal receipt will have Nicole's name attached, but only because she set up the account originally. All admins have the ability to see what's in there.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about anything, please let us know. And thanks so much for helping to keep our doors open here at ScrappinChat!

RE: FUNDRAISING time again!!
Do we send it under goods & services or the other one? Is it straight money or does SC have to pay a fee for the money? Just wondering which one I'm supposed to use.

Oh crap. This is why I hate PayPal....I always do it wrong. I think there's a "gift" option? I don't think we have to pay a fee. But I'll be honest, I'm not 100% sure.

This option is only free if you use your Paypal balance or your bank account. If you use a credit card there is a service fee.

Anywoo, I've sent a donation. If you don't collect enough give a shout out and I'll send a bit more. Smile

RE: FUNDRAISING time again!!
With the friends and family option, the sender has the option to pay the credit card fee instead of the receiver. In the end, it probably doesn't matter, whether you take the fee our of what you can pay or pay what you can and the fee is taken from your donation, it is probably a wash. If you have a balance or can pay from a bank account there would be no fees. But if you need to pay with a credit card (or prefer to), I wouldn't let the fee hold you back.

Live by faith, not by fear.

RE: FUNDRAISING time again!!
ah, that's right. Sorry about that. I did see the option to pay the credit card fee yourself.

Will send a donation.

I sent a donation. I had a balance so I did a "Friends and Family" payment so no fee.

RE: FUNDRAISING time again!!
So far we have received $155, and we had some money left in the account from last time (Paypal did not like that and kept sending us notices trying to get us to spend it!) so by my calculations we need about $200 more to reach our goal of $457.

And PLEASE, if your finances do not allow you to contribute, don't feel bad. We know that life has hit some of our friends hard and that you would donate if you could. We love you no matter what.

If you don't do PayPal and need to send a check we can do that too, the money isn't due until January so there's still time.

Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

I have a pay pal account but it totally baffles me da uses it for ebay. I have not been in a position to give in the past but would love to send someone a check/money order (do those things still exist?).

I'm on a very tight schedule of not getting anything done!

A check would be easier. Smile You can send it to me, just let me know the amount via PM so that I can add it to the running total so we can cut off fundraising when we reach our goal.

Sent in my donation. No fee since PayPal debited it from my bank account. Smile

Bumping this up again, for those that needed to wait till after Christmas to donate. Smile If you have mailed me a check please message me so I can add your amount to the total without having to wait for the mailman.

Yes, we are close, but I know there are people who wanted to donate but didn't have the chance yet. Nobody needs to donate twice this go-round. Smile

Can you check and see if I sent a donation? I have so many things coming out of Paypal that I can't keep up with what I've done. If I haven't, then I can do that today.
