For full transparency: BERLINBRIGADE.com is NOT a non-profit entity. Any donation you make is NOT tax deductible.
However, any donation you make is greatly appreciated. Since starting the first iteration of the BerlinBrigade.com website back in 1997 and until now, this has been a labor of love. However, as with everything else nowadays it comes with a price. While at first, there was no issue keeping the website up and running. Then with the sales of BerlinBrigade gear the pay received from the sales most certainly helped. Then when the pay structure was changed this became a little difficult to maintain; for example a product sold for $14.00USD NOW nets a $0.40 payout. This means it now takes between 4 to 5 sales to recover the same pay as one sale used to.
Let me share with you what your donations will do to support the maintenance and upkeep of the BerlinBrigade.com website
Webhosting Service: $400 annual (we are currently paying quarterly)
BerlinBrigade(dot)com domain registration renewal: $20 annual
SSL (A Secure Sockets Layer certificate, known commonly as an SSL certificate, is a small data file installed on a Web server that allows for a secure connection): $75 (new for 2021) and annual thereafter
Data maintenance & Website update: donated free of charge
TOTAL ANNUAL NEED: $495

Thank you for considering a donation. It is greatly appreciated and as you can see it will most certainly be put to immediate use. Yes, the payment of the annual services can be done at anytime. This means that as we meet a fee minimum that will be paid.
Thank you, Dave
