Dear Friends of I Hope To Speed,
In order to bring you a content rich site I must forego advertising revenue. By maintaining my non-commercial status I am able to share Ancestry.com and Fold3.com content with you. I’d like to keep it that way. However, maintaining this site is not without it’s expenses: Hosting, domain name registration, software and plug-ins add up. If this site has been particularly helpful to you please consider a contribution – no matter how small.
I am not a charity. Your donation will not be tax deductible. Funds received will go first to cover the annual costs of operating this site. Any funds above that amount in a calendar year will go towards the purchase of original records that can be shared on this site. Choice of which records to purchase will be at my sole discretion. I cannot accept ‘Directed Donations’.
I sincerely appreciate your support,
Disclosure: Those who donate will be eligible to request an accounting once in each calendar year they donate. Accounting will include a listing of all donations received with donor name redacted and how the funds were applied. Request your accounting via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
