LAST EDITED: 11/29/2018 [MM/DD/YYYY]
Here at the International Gamers Federation, we pride ourselves on promoting and maintaining a completely open and honest approach to leadership. Our community is one that is run by the players, therefore we strongly believe that it is your right to know exactly what we do with all donations we receive.
Every single penny that we receive is used towards our services in some fashion. Donations received will never be used in a manner to profit from, ever. All donations that we receive are and will be used for the sole purpose to continually improve our community. Our main priority is to fund our monthly bills. On the donation page, you can see our current monthly expenses broken down individually by the specific service.
After achieving our donation goal or by using the monthly reserve fund, we then begin to allocate funds elsewhere other than our bills. Here are a few examples:
- Purchasing Widgets, Addons / Plugins for our website
- Purchasing themes and skins for our website
- Upgrading our monthly bandwidth for this website (important as we grow)
Buying paid products for our services
- Custom Paid scripts by third-party developers
- Custom Paid models by third-party developers
- Custom plugins by third-party developers
- Upgrading our Teamspeak License (important as we grow)
- Purchasing more domains
- Paying third-party or freelance developers to help improve our services
As stated above, at no point will any of our members, staff, or leadership pocket/profit from any donations. We are not here for money; we are here to provide and experience an unmatched gaming experience and community for all to participate in. While any and all donations are greatly appreciated, it is never required from anyone. Using our services are completely free and donating will not give you any sort of power to dominate over the rest. We maintain a level playing ground for all, and do not support any sort of play-to-win scheme.
Monthly expense reports will be available with our monthly newsletter once we begin distributing those.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding how the International Gamers Federation uses it's donations, please do not hesitate to contact @Otto Rosmarus (Walrus) or @Robert Vicks (gamerz971). Thank you for your time. Have a great day!
