MurraysWorld and Your Support

Quote

MurraysWorld is a strictly non-profit organisation run by a group of volunteers whose contributions to the website are fuelled by their enthusiasm for tennis and for helping the community.

Keeping the website online involves the lease of server hardware. Most websites will cover this cost by advertisements but we believe this significantly lowers the quality of the website and browsing experience.

We have never, and will never, ask for donations. However, we ourselves are often asked how donations can be made. Therefore, if you wish to donate towards the running costs of MurraysWorld, we now have that option available and humbly accept your generosity.

All donations go entirely towards running costs of the website which are strictly limited to hardware rental costs and in rare cases engineer time. The campaign goal is a dynamic projection of the year's total costs. In the scenario of donations exceeding the year’s goal, the excess will be rolled over to the following year, whereas a deficit will not.

For the sake of transparency, invoices can be provided on request.

Thank you everyone for your donations last year. It was the first time we accepted donations and I did not expect to receive enough to fully cover the running costs for the year. Your generosity is incredible and greatly appreciated.

In donations we received just over the £610 projected goal for 2013. With the year over, I now know the actual running costs came to £586.19. Therefore, the £40.70 excess has been rolled over to the 2014 campaign.

Thanks again everyone and any questions can be posted here.

Projected goal has been reduced from £590 to £375 due to our hosting provider's new pricing model coming into effect.
