Has there ever been a yearly budget breakdown ever shown as to how the $340,000 per year is used? That’s saying almost $1000 a day is needed to run FR. Maybe if people had a basic idea of what is actually going towards what, it might at least give them some reasons for donating. Otherwise it’s just a large nebulous number and it has people asking the very questions people would naturally ask - how/why does it cost so much to run this place? Give them a basic but detailed enough answer, and it may be enough to convert questioners into donors.
Thanks for the question. When you click on one of the donation links, on the next screen, over on the left is a group of headings, one of which is “budget”. Click on it, and this will give some info about where the money goes to keep this GEM of a forum going.
