Our goal at nerd.nu is to provide a high-quality multiplayer gaming experience embedded in a genuine, friendly community. However, hosting the servers needed to provide you with this experience is not cheap. We are currently spending $185.13 per month on our primary box with an additional $50.92 per month on a secondary box, totaling a monthly cost of $236.05.
For our 2020 Fundraiser a portion of donations will go to Child's Play and a portion of the contributions will go towards supporting our servers. While most of the server contributions money will be used to pay our monthly hardware bill, some of it may also be used to advertise our servers in order to help grow the community or to expand our services into games other than Minecraft. Our budget for these additional expenses will be determined by the amount of money we raise; we will keep you up-to-date on how this money is being spent.
