Donations

Why Donate?

Simply put, Kinmunity costs money to operate. It costs approximately $724.50 each year to maintain. This number surprises a lot of people, we'll break it down below. The majority of Kinmunity's operating costs are paid for out-of-pocket by the administration and staff team. We provide Kinmunity as a free public resource to the community. Donating helps to offset costs incurred by the administration team for hosting and maintaining the resource for free.

Breakdown of operating costs

Kinmunity's site is comprised of its framework, applications, plugins, and themes. The framework powers the core functions of the site, applications add new features and functionality to the framework, and plugins improve upon existing features. Themes control the user interface of the site. We do not include the time and labor put into the site by our staff or administration team in this breakdown.
