I've had a couple new members ask me recently how to donate to VOR.  Here are the details:

If you've found a racing series here that you love and plan to continue racing here, please consider making a small donation to VOR.

How much is appropriate?
$10 or $20 is great.  We'll have some members that give more, and that's great.  But if we get a majority giving $10-$20, that would be wonderful.

What will this money be used for?
- our Ventrilo server
- our Race Server
- Speedgeezers forum and website admin
- rFactor Central

Is VOR in financial trouble?
Nope, not at all.  However we do rely on donations to continue.

I'm new here, should I donate?
It's completely up to you.  Whether you donate or not, you are still welcome to race and participate here.  If you love the mod and the racing here, then consider a donation to help it continue.

How do I donate?
Go to our website, scroll down under the news area on the right, and there is a VOR Donations area with a Paypal button.  This will take you to Paypal where you log in and enter an amount.  The address it's going to is JCPrince's email (John Prince (our treasurer)).  It will take you less than 3 minutes :)  Do not use the donate button at the top of the forums - that goes to Speedgeezers.  VOR makes donations as a league to Speedgeezers.

What if I don't have PayPal?
I have no idea.  Send John Prince a PM and ask him.  I'm sure you can mail him a check.

What if I've already donated this season?
It is up to you.  If you are getting enjoyment out of this league and series - consider another donation to ensure the league continues into the future.  Donate what you feel is appropriate and what your budget allows for.  Most people should be able to donate $10-$20 without much trouble - and with the amount of members we have - that will ensure we last for a long time :)

It's that time of year where we need to renew our servers, etc.

If you haven't donated in a while (or ever) and have found a place you like to race - please consider donating to the cause.  We don't require payment to be a member, but donations ensure we keep our doors open on the fastest hardware we can rent, etc.  If you've just recently donated - it's greatly appreciated!

Details are above.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  And thanks for your support! :D

Raymond, you dont need paypal to donate, if you got a credit card, you can donate without even logging into Paypal.

BUMP

If it's been a while since you've donated, please do so.  We've paid everything needed, but don't have the needed reserves to ensure our future when existing agreements end.  We run the league on a donation basis rather than requiring payment - we'd like to keep it this way.

Think about the value here.  How many hours a week do you enjoy VOR?  How does that compare against anything else you do?  Today, I'm going go-kart racing... about $100/hour.  How about hitting a bar - $25/hour easily.  Going to movie - $20 easily.  If you drive here only 5 hours a week, for 26 weeks (13 weeks GTS/LMC each) and donate $20 - thats $.15 (15 cents) an hour.

Please donate to the cause :)  I want to ensure we can keep our Ventrilo server running, our race server, our forums, etc.

And if you just recently donated - thanks!

Thanks for reminding, it's been a year since last one for me.
I look at it same way as Bruce.  It's small price to pay for so much fun.

Go directly to Paypal, and use this email as the recipient: jcprince@swbell.net

Should work without AVG issues (I use AVG and don't have an issue)

Just donated for the 09 Season. :beerchug:

Just renewed my Xbox Live and it reminded me that I needed to donate here, where I have more fun anyways ;).

A big thanks goes to everyone who keeps the league running.

Done...ated!
It was not too much, but it was all this "Old-fellow-bankrupted-musician-studio-owner" could afford!
Thanks Bruce/VOR admins for the efforts to make things working so perfectly!

I'm not that fond of the 'pay to play' sites, the competition makes it all about the money and less about the racing.  However, periodic donations to a league that is more concerned with having fun & the camaraderie ... that's money well spent!

Donated! I had to wait until I made enough money that my wife wouldn't complain. :)
