Providing the services we do is expensive. The cost of hardware and bandwidth continues to grow as we provide more and more people and organizations with email, lists and other services. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. We can't do it without you!

System users (those with email accounts or lists etc) are asked to make a financial contribution (if at all possible) after having their accounts for three months and then again on an annual basis in the spirit of building mutual aid relationships. People living in countries with currencies that are lower valued than the Canadian dollar should contribute to local projects. Let us know if you are in this situation. Conversely, if you live in countries with a highly valued currency, please consider making a larger donation. It'll go further here.
