Virtual Hogwarts relies on donations to cover our server fees and software licensing fees. The cost amounts to just over $400 US per year.
VH is not for profit and completely free to our members. Nobody is expected or obligated to donate. We don't want anyone to feel bad or guilty if they cannot or don't want to donate. However, if you are willing and able to donate, any amount is appreciated.
Donors will receive a Gringotts Key from the shop and their character name will be added to the Donor list (unless they choose to be anonymous).
How to Donate:
You can send money through Paypal. Use the Forum Donations sidebar on the forum index or log into Paypal and send a donation to donations - at - virtual-hogwarts.org (replace the " - at - " with the appropriate symbol, of course).
Note: If you'd like your character's name to be included on our list of donors, please let us know their name in the "Add special instructions to recipient" field when you send your payment.
All funds collected by our lovely Treasurer will be channeled into VH. No amount is too small, but keep in mind that Paypal does charge us a fee so if it's less than a dollar, you'll mainly be donating money to Paypal.
- If you send us money through Paypal, you are not purchasing anything. You are giving us a gift. Donations buy you no special privileges other than our gratitude and the continued existence of VH. VH is free to play on and always will be free.
- Though we do not profit from VH, we are not a registered non-profit organization. You can't deduct this from your taxes.
- Paypal payments will not be refunded unless there was an obvious mistake in the transaction. Paypal charges us a percentage to receive the money. We don't want to lose money because someone gets fed up with someone a few weeks down the line. >.<
