Information about S4GRU Sponsorship levels and how to become a Sponsor

Recommended Posts

How long do you become a sponsor for a donation? What I mean is, does it only last a month? And how much is required to become a sponsor to get access to the maps.

 

Thanks

Regular sponsorship is good for six months from the most recent donation. Premier sponsorship is indefinite.

 

Regular sponsorship has no minimum. However we need to average 20-25 to make our monthly projections, but I understand not everyone can afford that.

Thanks for the response. Is that a desire for 20-25 per member or the amount total you need from all sponsors? Sorry if this is a dumb question haha. I just don't want to look bad for making a small donation to view the sponsor info

You shouldn't worry about it. If you can afford $25, then that's great. If you can afford more, it allows us to do more. Like host and create more maps, etc. If you can only afford $10, then it helps. Let your wallet be your guide.

Just a little different than Jiminy Crickets advice...

It is to bad Sprint doesn't support you. This would show all of us that they really mean it this time. :)

I'm glad Sprint doesn't support this site. If they supported financially then they would feel entitled to edit/influence/censor content.

I have only been here a month but I felt I had to contribute to the cause, so I made a little $30 donation. More to come later.

I will go donate now. Also would like to offer my IT/ISP experience to help keep the server(s) running at no charge if you'd like.

Made a (small) donation. Cant do too much now, but I actually keep a list of websites I plan on supporting in the future when I can be more loose with money. Obviously added this one as well.

Well they could support it in the sense of providing inside technical information and inside info, they know that S4GRU is impartial and a good forum for unbiased information.

I am part of those who donated $1 dollar -_- , I am sorry I couldn't donate more. I am a college student and can't afford much, my Sprint bill is already killing me, I know 5+ bucks won't kill anyone but that is my metro card money! I don't need to be upgraded to sponsor as I did it for kindness. Love the site and I hope the best.

 

^^^^^^^ Hey Robert, What would you think of adding a gift donation option? (sponsorship?) one of us senior(let me turn on my hearing aid) members could give the gift of sponsorship, because that would be awesome. #PayItForward

I have received gift donations via PayPal in the past for others. I had one person even pay for someone to upgrade to the Premier level. All you need to do is write in the Comments section of the PayPal donation that you are Sponsoring someone else and their screen name.

Robert, if this is done, would you be willing to keep the name of the Sponsor anonymous? Some folks like to do good deeds without making it public knowledge.

Absolutely. I always keep them anonymous, unless asked. Which no one has.

If you wish to sponsor another member, we greatly appreciate your generosity, and you can do so anonymously. The only way that anyone will know is that your avatar will temporarily change to an image of Sally Struthers (the South Park version).

      I'm REALLY frustrated trying to figure out how to become a premiere sponsor. I assume this means a certain dollar amount of donation... I already donated a couple times for the 'basic' sponsorship, but would LOVE to be a premiere sponsor...yet I can't find anything on how much I need to donate to do it. Having to jump through such hoops to donate money makes it really easy for me to just want to give up and move on to something else.
       
      I'm sure the info is here somewhere, but a search of the forums turned up nothing, and I can't seem to find an email address to contact the admins to send a question, which would also be useful.
       
      This seems to me to be a HUGE hole and likely throwing away a lot of money by not making this information easily accessible. You'd get a lot more donating members if you maybe put a couple notes below the donation button so people have an idea of what they need to donate to get to x access level, or a link to a page that says if you donate this you get this.
       
      With that suggestion in place.... what's the answer? :-)

      I would like to become a sponsor and rather pay using bitcoin. Will you be accepting bitcoin in the future?
       
      One site that may be able to help you accept bitcoin is https://bitpay.com/
