Please visit our Fundraising Page. Then, if you find our services useful, please consider making a donation! We have so far relied on the generosity of a small group of dedicated volunteers, but we still need your help! We are a Nevada Non-Profit Corporation and have applied for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. Your donation may be tax-deductible.

We will be announcing membership levels and benefits soon, but if you want to give a donation now you can apply it toward membership later. Please use the paypal Donate button on the right or drop us a line if you prefer to pay by check or would like to donate time or equipment!
