    Happy to donate a bit @James Todd, but is there any kind of budget / summary of the cost structure to run the forum? How much you hope to raise? How much was raised last year, and how much you covered personally because we raised too little? (if that was the case).

    I'll leave it to James to disclose budget and goals about the upcoming year, but the money raised in 2014–15 was almost exactly the amount needed to cover 27 months of forum service fees (the period of my ownership). Those funds run out this month. I don't think anyone is under the illusion that TD is a profit-making enterprise, but I hope James and Tiffany can raise a bit more than we did last time so there is a bit of compensation for their time.

    I guess James and Tiffany didn’t get the emails I did from the guy offering fifty dollars to place bespoke content related to an upcoming Hermann Zapf feature in a computer magazine.

    That is not a joke.

    @James Todd Thank you for the explanation! I hope you didn’t take my post as an attack — I think some level of openness about the cost involved should help raise funds. Thank you!

    @Thierry Blancpain Not a problem. I definitely didn’t take it as an attack.

    Done. I agree with @Thierry Blancpain that if typedrawers is to be dependent on donations, then openness about the budget and how it is spent would be nice.

    Any way to set up the PP donation as a recurring monthly payment, as Stephen had done?

    Hello, it's been quite a while. Best wishes for 2017 to all. I haven't been frequenting this place a lot but I really appreciate the information gathered here and the support when working on a typeface. Good luck!

    We will look into that and get back to you. Thank you for asking.

    Tax time: Could you please provide an address for “JTD LLC” or whatever, so that Typedrawers can be presented as a substantial entity that I can write off as a convincing business expense? 
  • Scott-Martin Kosofsky

    I second Nick's request. Setting it up as a potentially deductible expense would encourage much greater generosity. ALSO: It was only by accident that I noticed this announcement. Generally, those things in gray at the top of the discussion list are very old and I tend to ignore them, as I'm sure others do, too. You might want to reiterate your request as a general posting or in some other, more noticeable way.

    An annual email before the holidays would be good.

    I'm tight right now but I'll give in February. In the meantime, I'm posting about the fund drive on FontFriday's Facebook page. 
    Thanks for your efforts!

    Is there a way that it could be done from Iran? We don't have credit cards and PayPal,... because of the US sanctions  <3
