> Why isn't the suggestion of donations on both the PB page and the SPB page? I don't see it. (Am I missing something; it wouldn't be the first time?)
You don't see the box with the Amazon and iGive graphics and the "donation" link? And the "support" links at the top and bottom of every main page?
> I would also be willing to help set up an early spring fund drive, if there's anything I can do. You give a speech on the board for a week (maybe two) and break it down. For twenty-five dollars a year, psychobabble is just costing you ____cents a day. For fifty, etc. etc. And you explain without the contributions of the members, the life of PB is always in jeopardy.
> if it's a group project then it would make it much easier to fork over a few dollars... The amount of money could be tallied up each day and shared (anonomously as to donator) because having money seems to stimulate more money.
Would you like to volunteer to be fund drive chair? If so, tell me what to do, and let's give it a try. :-)
> If everyone gave an average of $35 dollars a year (some $10, $25, and up to $100.) would this be enough to be helpful?
Who do you mean, "everyone"? Every little bit helps...
> Every time you bring up a charge, I think people get nervous ... because new people might turn away
True. But those who stayed might be more committed?
> By the way, since this is a nonprofit organization, it is should be eligible to be included in the United Way? I wonder how you become part of that.
Good question, does anyone know?
> I think the last round of deciding how to charge was so painful that I'd be grateful to contribute, just to avoid the controversy about charging for the site.
Well, it wasn't me who brought it up this time! :-)
