Why Donate

This page may be a little behind, donations will be added as we receive notifications from paypal

Nerd.nu was founded on the concept of fair play and the idea that when it comes to gaming, everyone should start with equal footing — and after ten years of operation, we haven't strayed from these important values. Many online gaming services allow users to pay for in-game perks or specialized access, but here at Nerd, we firmly believe that money should be given not for the in-game rewards it might bring, but as a way of showing your appreciation for and supporting the costs of the services we provide.

By contributing to nerd.nu, you will be helping to pay for the hardware our servers are run on. You will not receive any in-game rewards or prizes for contributing, but you will be recognized with an announcement in-game and a permanent place on our contribution list below.

If you decide you'd like to contribute, you may be wondering how much money to give. The contribution amount we've received most often has been $20, but we recognize that our users come from a broad range of varying backgrounds with differing levels of financial means. We've received contributions of amounts from less than five dollars to several hundred dollars in the past, so it's difficult for us to recommend a single amount to contribute. Instead, we'd like to encourage you to contribute whatever amount you feel comfortable with. No matter what amount you choose, all contributions are greatly appreciated.
