Support this site

Since Larry Auton and I (Alex Frakt) created this site in 2001, we have put in thousands of hours and thousands of dollars providing programming, hardware, bandwidth and management. We have done this gladly, directly inspired by the examples of Jack Bogle and Taylor Larimore, without asking for recompense of any kind. However, the increasing popularity of the site has led to ever-increasing demands on our time and pocketbooks which are becoming unsustainable. As we prefer to keep the site commercial-free and are completely opposed to membership fees, we have decided to see if our members can provide ongoing support through donations and by using affiliate links to selected providers.

If you would like to donate directly to the maintenance and management of the site, I have arranged for my wife's law firm to handle donations through its trust account (it helps that I'm the firm's manager). Donations can be made by check or online via credit card or checking account via Paypal. Please note that donations are not tax deductible.

Online via PayPal (using credit card or PayPal account)

- The paypal donation page will show that you are sending the payment to, with listed under the heading "Purpose". Note that if you have cookies disabled when you go to Paypal, you will get an error message.

Please be assured that we will be highly selective and will only enter into programs with companies that we (or our members) can personally recommend.
