Our annual web site hosting fee of $150 US has come around again. We need your help to keep the site alive and kicking! If you value TSF and want to see it continue, please consider making a donation via the Paypal Donation button on the left hand panel of the main menu. This is the only payment method we can accept. A small donation from each of our current members would knock this amount off in no time. We don't charge anyone to join, and we don't allow advertising on the site, but that means that we are reliant on members to fund the operating costs. All admin and moderators here volunteer their time, but we can't cover the costs by ourselves. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

2017 Donations currently stand at:
No of members: 0
$ contributed: $0

I have paid the outstanding fees myself, but that is unsustainable. I will look towards getting advertising for the site. If anyone is aware of potential advertisers please let me know.

That is really upsetting I wish that you would have accepted bitcoin as previously mentioned however I will see if I can donate in another form in the nearest future.
Really sorry to hear that this debt fell to you when just one dollar off each member would be ample.

We really need your help now. We have been unable as yet to secure any advertising, so are still reliant on member donations. Renewal of our domain name (thesongwritersforum.com) is due in under two months and we currently have $1 in our account. There is a significant risk of the site closing if the members do not see fit to contribute financially to keeping it open. Please donate via the Paypal Donation button on our main menu if you can.

Be aware that we are looking at closure of TSF at the end of September if we cannot raise funds to pay for our domain name registration (http://www.thesongwritersforum.com)

An enormous thank you to Seamus and Marty Ray Boone, who have individually donated very generously and thanks to whom we can now keep TSF alive and running for another year.

Gentlemen, TSF owes you a debt. Thank you very much indeed!

Old thresd but I just opted to donate a dollar a month. It's not very much I know but I'm not rich. I don't think it would be too much to ask members to do something like this.

Thank you Chris. Every little helps, and if all members did the same then our funding would be secured. Fortunately we have been in a better position since 2017.
