All donations to the Home Brew Digest are appreciated and used to cover its operating expenses - predominantly the maintenance of the server equipment and the domain name. The Digest now has a bank account of its own. It is preferred that donations be made payable to Pat Babcock for ease of my operations; however, they can be made payable to "Home Brew Digest" or, simply, "HBD", if that is preferred for your bookkeeping. Donations can be mailed to (NOTE NEW ADDRESS):
HBD Server Fund
2478 Cabot St
Canton Township, MI 48188-1825
|NOTE: I have finally opened a bank account for the HBD! You can now make the check out to "Home Brew Digest" or "HBD". Making it out to "Pat Babcock" is preferred as it allows me to deposit the monies into the same account from which I generally write the checks to pay for connectivity et al, but I'll no longer be returning miswritten checks. 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. Thanks.|
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
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.|
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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com.
Doing this saves the HBD the Paypal fees noted above. Thanks!
