The ayes have it -- Hearts extended until Sunday! [View all]

Just a quick announcement: Yesterday I noted that a number of people had requested an extension of the fund drive so that there was more time to give and receive hearts, and I asked how everyone felt about that. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of the idea, so we're extending the fund drive for a few extra days -- it will now end Sunday night (February 18).

As a reminder:

  • If you already have a recurring monthly or yearly payment, and you want to make an additional one-time contribution, use the One-time online payment option -- your recurring payment will not be affected.

  • If you already have a recurring monthly or yearly payment and you want to increase the amount, my recommendation would be to visit this PayPal page and cancel your existing payment, then come back to DU and start either a new recurring monthly or recurring yearly payment.
We're hoping to get people to sign up for monthly subscriptions to help stabilize our budget.

I won't be bugging you any further -- this will be the last announcement before the end of the fund drive! When you arrive at DU on Monday morning everything will be back to normal, so you have until Sunday night to give and receive hearts.

Once again, a huge thank you to all our Star Members past, present, and future -- this fund drive has really demonstrated the difference you make, and the power of your support when it comes to keeping DU up and running.

Thank you!

EarlG, on behalf of Elad -- the DU Administrators
