We continue to need funds to keep the server running[1]. Please donate!

The Treasurer is Mark Widmer.

Thank you!    

Donations by electronic Bill Pay

If you would prefer to set up an automatic, recurring transfer directly into the Citizendium account, please contact Pat Palmer via the enquiry form (Google Account required) or the wiki. This option is especially helpful, as it avoids the nearly 3% fees incurred on donations made by Paypal or credit card.

How our funds are used

Donated funds will be used for the following:

  • server costs ($74.95 monthly as of August 2020)
  • domain registrar costs (about $300 every five years, last paid in July 2020)
  • email hosting costs (for registration procedure)
  • business expenses including ads for membership and Paypal fees

All spending will be shown on the monthly financial report. There are no salaries, as this is an all-volunteer operation. If in the future we decide to shut down, any leftover funds will be donated to the Internet Archive.
