As many of you know, we have recently been approved by the IRS as a legally recognized 501( c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization!!! It’s been a long time coming but we finally made it.
With this update, as requested by many of you, I have created a button on the site in the upper right hand corner that allows users to submit a one time donation, or subscribe to monthly donations using either paypal or a credit card.
Even though we also have a Patreon going, I would prefer that users opt into donating via the button on the website from now on if you have no preference. We will certainly keep the Patreon going for all those who prefer paying that way, however, Patreon takes and keeps a sizable percentage of your donation, whereas Paypal takes far, far, far less. So this will be the way we prefer you to pay going forward - but again, it’s entirely up to you.
And remember, no one at Retro Game Boards accepts a dime of your donations. Everything that has been donated so far has gone towards (1) server costs and (2) funds in excess of those costs have been going into our charity’s bank account which will be entirely donated towards providing video games to sick children in hospitals.
If you have any questions, please let me know. And thank you all for continuing to make this place those most chill, civil, mature, charitable, and enjoyable video game forum on the internet.
