The donation system has been active for a few weeks now and so far has been successful. There was a small increase in budget after it was realized that we had not counted in Paypal fees. Total budget was set to $425/month. We received $560 net, after Paypal fees. This is 130% of budget, which is a very positive thing. The extra money will be kept in the dedicated site bank account and applied to increasing marketing spending and act as a buffer for any upcoming cost increases for domain renewal, etc.

Thank you to everyone who contributed. I'll be resetting the monthly counter so it more closely corresponds to end and beginning of month.

The forum's donors have once again met the budget for the month, with 4 days to spare. If the donations exceed the budget, it will be helpful because we are planning on registering the Transrefuge organization as a nonprofit, and there will be some registration costs involved.

When the organization was still in its infancy, I registered it as a sole proprietorship, since it was only $7 and keeping costs down was a priority. Now that the organizarion has proven to be financially solvent, it is time to properly register it and get the tax liabilities off my back. The organization was never intended to have any single individual as an owner, so this is a step toward fulfilling that principle.

Additionally, there might be a new media format in the works for TransRefuge. It won't change anything on the forum, but will hopefully broaden our audience. We'll provide more details once we're closer to identifying our goals and core competencies for that expansion.

I am going to create a separate $50 fundraising drive to cover a new marketing exploration. I am limiting the initial marketing exploration to 5 days at $10/day to see how it goes. If you want to support growing the site, monetary support would be helpful.
