Donate to GibGames Refugees

We are not a corporation, we are not a clan; were a gaming community--there is no obligation for anyone to pay any money for the privilege of playing on our servers. However, keeping the servers up costs money, which we don't have a lot of. So, if you enjoy playing here we would very much appreciate your help in keeping the servers up and running. Whether you are able to donate any money to us or not, you can still help to shape our community. The best way to do that, is to encourage other people to come and play on our servers, and provide feedback to us through in the forums.

Please read this page carefully; depending on where and how you make your donation, there may be no way to get a refund if your make an error.

There are two ways of donating money to us; you can donate money directly to the servers, or you can donate to the general fund. Money in the "general fund" goes to a PayPal account that is used to pay for the servers, webspace and other expenses. It's the most flexible option for us because we can use the money for all sorts of things related to keeping the community up and running, but we don't receive 100% of your donation since some of it is lost to PayPal transaction fees. On the other hand, we do generate a small amount of interest on our PayPal balance.

To make a donation to the "general fund", please click the following link or use the PayPal button in the navigation column:
General Donation: Website & Forum Hosting, Start-up Capital for New Servers

Server-specific donations do not go through the general fund; they are made directly to the hosting company--we cannot use that money for any other purpose. If you click on the link, you will see the monthly server cost and our account balance. That way, you can determine how long the servers will keep running with their current donations--and decide how generous you'd like to be. NOTE: A positive balance means that we can keep the server going into the future. A $0 balance means that everything is paid off for the current month; if a negative balance appears, we could be shut down by the hosting company within a few days for non-payment. Please don't let us get into a negative balance! Let's try and keep the balance positive!

As long as a server has donations to keep it paid in advance, it will not be shut down unless there is some major reorganization going on. If you would like to help determine how the servers are managed, please join us in the forums--all major decisions are discussed there. Many changes are put up to a vote of the users.

All donations are handled through PayPal, but you do not have to sign up for an account--you can use your credit card or bank account to make the payment without signing up. Please read each page and follow the directions carefully; we want to make sure your money goes where you want it to.
