    Anxiety Space is now not-for-profit and ad-free!

    This has been the case for awhile, but today it's official, Anxiety Space is not-for-profit. All funds raised by the site goes back into the site whether it pays for servers, new software or new features. Wherever it goes, it goes to benefit the community. And as a bonus, ads are now banned, no more weight loss pills, scams or viruses. Later on, a foundation will be setup to support, fundraise and promote Anxiety Space. The foundation would not only insure that Anxiety Space is here to stay, but gives our community the recognition it deserves.

    This site now belongs to the community, lets make it great.

    Anxiety Space made another post, at the momment, the admins seem to donate to keep this place running. I'm short of cash at the mo and literally need pretty much every penny I have for food, transport, things like that, but I'd be more than happy to donate to this place to keep it going if thats what it comes to it or whatever.. My post count to join date ratio...is a bit large from excessive the banned game and last post wins usage...honestly, I love this place, met a load of great people on here.

    I guess the foundation will be some sort of charity that promotes awareness of anxiety/this place or something, I dunno.

    Thanks for the offers. Because we all volunteers the only costs the site has is technical (mainly server and domain costs), these costs are low which means the site currently has the funds to pay for at least the next year's running costs, when we grow bigger and need more funds we will let you all know.

    The foundation is for the site's long-term health and allowing it to meet its legal and other requirements. The reason we went with a foundation is because the only other option was Anxiety Space run by for-profit corporation. There was a clear winner in that choice. The foundation would be a charity with a clear mission to support, fundraise and promote Anxiety Space, while promoting awareness. Annual reports and financial statements would be released publicly showing how much funds was raise, where it came from and where it went. This is still early days though and there are other priorities for the site at the moment, including getting certifications, so this won't happen over night, but it will happen.

    Currently all funding comes from Kay and myself. The foundation will raise funds via donations, merchandising, grants, etc, the details of which will be publicly available.

    I should add, that other than what is already list here, nothing about the foundation has been decided, such as the way it will work, its powers and how it is structured. All of that would be put up, for which the community will debate a range of options and come to an agreement on.
