January 2021 Donations & Finances


Recommended Posts

  • City Council

Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a safe and happy holiday season so far.


This will be our last donation window for this year and covers us through January 30th. We moved this donation window from December 26th to today as the 26th is Boxing Day and falls in the middle of the later December holidays.


Other Ways to Help Homecoming

Continuing the format from our last finances post, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that there are more ways to support Homecoming than just through donations. For a general overview of the different ways you can help Homecoming, check out this thread.


Specifically, we are currently looking for a web designer to help out with a new website we’re working on. We’re specifically looking for someone with more experience on the design side of web design and development, but knowledge and experience with HTML5, CSS3, and Sass would definitely help. For more information, see this thread.


Additionally, we’re always in need of more people to help test upcoming updates on our public beta server; the bug reports and feedback that we receive from testers helps us immensely. For more information on how to get started on the beta server, check out our Read This to Get Started thread and the rest of the Beta Forums.


And finally, if you have Discord Nitro then please consider using a Nitro server boost on our public Discord server. Maintaining over 30 Nitro boosts gives all of our members new and enhanced features on the server including additional emojis, a higher upload limit, better voice chat quality, and our vanity URL.

Now, onto the final financial breakdown for this year.


December 2020 Breakdown

Last month we accepted $4,700.91 in donations, $109.46 over our target for the month.


We used the overrun from the December donation window to go ahead and pay most of the 6-month renewal on our UPS mailbox. The remainder of this cost will be included in the January 2021 donation window.


Here is the breakdown of what December’s funds went towards:

  • $4,645.44 to OVH for our hosting
  • $142.00 for the 6-month renewal on our UPS mailbox
  • $121.26 for our Google G-Suite Business account
  • $25.00 for the Paperspace Air instance
  • $9.73 for the security / administration software
  • $8.00 for our AWS EC2 instance which is serving our mail through Amazon SES

The donation target for January 2021 is $4,848.68. Here is a breakdown of how the funds are allocated:
