There are no fees to access this site and plans are to keep this site open and accessible to all.
Currently, there are some costs associated with running the site, including website hosting and maintenance, theme and plugin updates, and various software licensing costs.
The site runs on WordPress which is hosted on a premium server to keep the site loading fast. Users are able to upload unlimited images and videos, which means we incur higher hosting fees as the size of the site increases. We also license software annually, which provides the forum and groups functionality, calendar, and directory.
Altogether, site costs amount to approximately $1,000 per year.

Donations are made to OrgSpring, Inc. a 501c3 nonprofit organization (EIN: 45-5142615) that was founded in Mt Lebanon and is currently run by an all-volunteer board. Donations are tax-deductible and a receipt will be emailed to you for your tax records.
