Nerd Nu Post-Fundraiser Financial Update 2019


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! As promised, here is our 2019 NerdNu Financial Update.

During the 2019 fundraiser, we received $3,259.30 in donations($135.31 of that was taken for fees).  Typically, we like to ensure that we have more than a year worth of funding.  We are currently sitting around two years. 

We are currently paying for two servers - the primary one where PvE, Creative, Event, Chaos, the main site, and the forums run while the secondary server hosts the wiki, map downloads, and development servers.

Our current contract that started last year (and came with fancy new hardware) is a three year contract for $118USD/month and the secondary box is approximately $51USD/month.  The forums are still $25USD every six months.

We also have some fees to register the wiki domain, Nerd.nu domain, and to pay for some S3 backups.

Below is a summary of our expenses since the last fundraiser, and the document we use to track expenses can  be seen here.

And as requested, our Fundraiser Feedback Post can be found here!

We have been discussing next year's fundraiser and the possibility of donating either a portion or all of the donations for 2020 to a reputable charity.  In previous years, we had donated to Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games. We would love to hear your thoughts on this idea and will be bringing it up again with you when we begin planning for 2020's Fundraiser.
