2014 Home Brew Digest, Inc. Health Assessment: Critical
Funds ran out in October 2014. HBD is now surviving on Pat's dime only.
Home Brew Digest, Inc. is a 501(c)3 corporation. Donations and gifts to the HBD are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable under the law.
Assessment Date Projected Budget Expended Non-budgeted Spend* Remaining To Expend Excess/Shortfall
02/22/15          

The 2015 HBD, Inc. budget is is under development.
Where possible, we buy services at a discount by committing to multi-year contracts as well. Our contract with our ISP has expired, and we are now month to month. Should they offer a significant savings for a multi-year contract renewal, we may pursue this as well.
I am working to move the HBD to a "virtual private server". This is an ongoing effort, and is complicated by a change in operating system, change in mail server software, age of the HBD scripts, and the fact that I'm working out of the country, 7x16+ hours a day.
*Includes unforeseen items not planned into the annual budget:
    - 

2015 Projected Budget: $3,450.00

Note: Entrie s are made online and "on the fly". The ledger is occasionally pulled into Excel, sloppy math errors are corrected, and the page is put back online. This was last performed on 12/29/14.

All donations to the Home Brew Digest are appreciated and used to cover its operating expenses - predominantly connectivity, the maintenance of the server equipment and the associated domain names. The HBD is a legally registered not-for-profit corporation in Michigan, and has its own bank account. Checks can be made payable to "Home Brew Digest, Inc." or, simply, "HBD", if that is preferred for your bookkeeping; however, Home Brew Digest, Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 public charity, making your donation deductible on your income taxes to the full extent allowable by law - however, in order to be deducted from your taxes you must make the check payable to Home Brew Digest, Inc. as the IRS will not recognize "HBD" (however, we are maintaining records of donors to assist where necessary). Donations can be mailed to (NOTE NEW ADDRESS):

HBD Server Fund
2478 Cabot St
Canton, MI 48188-1825

NOTE: It is still advisable that, if you wish to have "HBD Server Fund" on the check, please ensure it is only in the Memo field. Leave the payee as Home Brew Digest, Inc. or HBD.

Thanks.

Donations to the HBD Server Fund can also be made by credit card via the following link. Once at the PayPal site, you can donate any amount from $5 upward, in increments of $5 to serverfund@hbd.org. Please note that the HBD loses $0.30 plus 2.2% off of the total of each donation. If you wish to donate more than $5, please change the "quantity" field to reflect the multiple of $5 US you wish to donate, rather than make several separate donations of $5. Thanks! Here's the link:

Please NOTE: If you have a Paypal account, you can save the HBD some donation money when you make yours! Here's how: log in, select "Send Money", select the "Personal" tab, and then select the "Gift" radio button. The address to send to is serverfund@hbd.org. Doing this saves the HBD the Paypal fees noted above. Thanks!

Make donations with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!
