Donation Drive 2015

I wanted to thank everyone for the support!  We are sitting on enough cash to keep things humming for 10-12 months now. 

Going forward what I would like to do is

  1. Give members who have donated in the past year a special ranking.  Instead of "Members" you will be something like "Supporter" or "Contributor"
  2. Ads will be added throughout the site.  Initially these will probably be a mix of Google ads and hopefully campaigns I can get from Mooney or aviation vendors
  3. Members with the rank outlined in #1 will *not* see any ads - as a contributor I don't think you should have to see the ads

This will create a lot more overhead for me having to manage the status of members and ad campaigns but with a little luck I might make enough to justify my efforts.

Hopefully if I can get the coffers a lot fuller I can justify hiring in an IPBoard developer to customize the site a lot more and bring back our home page and perhaps other cool features.

Thanks again!

Thanks, Craig! For whatever reason, the homepage came back on my iPad and Winders 10 desktop first, then my android phone,  and finally the pre-Winders 10 desktop at work.

I do miss the larger avatars, though. The new ones are so small it's hard to tell who they represent.

*Members that donate $10 or more do not see advertisements*

Done.  Also, ads are no problem if it keeps this awesome site thriving.  MS is a crucial part of Mooney ownership for me.  I have learned and benefited far more than I'll ever be able to contribute in return.

I'll be happy to donate when I get home, great group of folks on here. I'll say that I don't mind ads UNLESS they slowdown the site, then I freakin hate em.

Done.  Love the site.  Sure beats the last Mooney blog I was on (many years ago) getting tons of emails a day.  Hope my 20 years of Mooney ownership and experience has helped a few members.  I know I've learned a lot too.

Done Dec 31st , haven't seen a change yet. Does it take a while ? 

I have a donation on Dec 30 that I was not able to line up to a member account (ie the PayPal email did not match anything on the site).

Can you PM me or email me (admin [at] mooneyspace.com) with your name and the email you used for the PayPal donation?

Thanks!

Hello all,

It is that time again as the coffers for the site are running very low again - to a point where I can only keep the site online another 3 months or so.  The upgrade to the new site resulted in the donate banner going away so that really cut back on people donating.  I plan to get some kind of donate link back up as well as some kind of advertising solution to help support the site.

Anything you can contribute will help.  Below is a link for this:

If you want to donate via a check please message me on the site @mooniac58

Thank you for all your help!

I knew there was a way of getting our tax bill down.  Done. :)

I was just searching for this to ask- do our submissions count as charitable donations?

No, Mooneyspace is not a non-profit or charity so they would not be deductible.

But in the UK it can count as an expense deduction, so this reduces the tax bill. :)

I think you could do that in the US as long as your aircraft was under a business - then you could deduct website memberships, etc.  I do this with my MMOPA membership
