Donating to

Reading the recent thread about's servers and upcoming data center maintenance made me wonder how all that technology gets paid for. I assume most of the funds come from advertisements on the site, correct? Does that cover all the expenses needed to run the servers, etc.?

I use an ad-blocker, since I absolutely loathe advertisements and will do almost anything within reason to avoid them. Unfortunately, though, that means I'm probably not "paying my fair share" for being a part of this wonderful online community. Is there a way to directly donate money to to contribute to the continuing operation of this incredible site?

Yes, VIA FIRECalc. After you run your numbers, scroll down the results page and you'll see a "Donate" button.
Numbers is hard
