Milnet.ca Donations

First off, thanks for visiting this page, as it means you find Milnet.cavaluable enough to consider donating. That must mean we're doing something right now and then. Even if you don't have the means or inclination to donate, I appreciate you considering it.

As you know, Milnet.ca has provided a free service to those looking for information on Canada's military since 1993. Our goal is to continue to provide this service, and do so without introducing user fees or other indignities. In-site advertising and our generous Subscribers have helped cover off many of the operating expenses to date. The unfortunate reality though, is that running a site - even a "free" one - is very costly especially as readership, bandwidth usage and service costs rise. I have spent a fair amount of money over the years keeping the site alive, which I'm glad to do. At times though, expenses have increased beyond the point that I can reasonably afford. Donations and support from site users help cover off some of the costs associated with this site.

If you'd like to make a donation, just hit the Claymore below to begin. (Non-PayPal users should see the note at the bottom of this page.) Even a $5 donation helps - thanks!

                       

Where your money goes

The funds raised by these donations are all put back into the operation and development of this site. Some examples of this follow:
  • Hardware upgrades, such as extra disk space, more memory or faster CPUs
  • Network access and hosting (DSL connections, domain name renewal, DNS hosting, etc.)
  • Software, such as that used for the forums, chat room, etc.
  • Custom development work to help improve the site usability and features.
THANKS! Your support does make a difference! While I gladly give my time to building and maintaining the site, your donations will allow us to grow to meet our rising demand.

Other ways to help out...

We recognize that not everyone who wants to help out is a fan of PayPal, so there are a variety of other options available as well:
  • E-mail transfer to Milnet [at] Milnet.ca
  • Personal Cheque, made out to Crypto Logic Canada Inc., PO Box 144, Port Williams NS, B0P 1T0
  • Money Order cashable in Canada
You can also help out by subscribing to Milnet.ca , which nets you a battle badge, shirt and many in-site features. Lastly, if you know of any potential advertisers, please let them know that our rates are exceptionally low and we run through almost 5 million unused ad impressions each month - that's lots of room to accommodate prospective advertisers!

Once again, thanks to everyone who has helped make Milnet.ca a valuable resource. Your time, knowledge and financial help are greatly appreciated!
