To All Puritanboard members:

Right now we have $170 which I am waiting for a refund with the last hosting company that we tried. When that is returned we will have $170 towards a $240 bill that we need for this hosting company for the year. We are $70 short. This new server is more exspensive because it is a Virtual Server which makes the board run very fast. We need to raise $240 yearly to keep the board up with this hosting company.

Any donations to the board can be made via mail or through paypal at this donation page:

Thanks for your help,
The Admins

We have $180 total for the board yearly fee's; thats about $80 short. Please pray about investing in the kingdom here on Puritan Board. Whether it be for the sanctification of the saint, or the unbeliever hearing the good news. We can all agree that God is assuredly doing a work here with this medium.

Is one dollar too much? Paypal is very convienant; you just point and click!!!

Adam,
It just kills me when you say "fairly active". I do agree however. We are about to re release the XMB forum. Hopefully, things will pick back up huh?

Thanks for your contribution.....

Fairly may have not have been fair (lol) but I love when a board is so fast I can hardly keep up. It keeps me from venturing off to other boards that are not nearly as sound!

FYI:
We have had to increase disc space here on our host. That means that it will be costing Matt and I (outside of the donations) $360.00 per year to maintain the board. Please pray about making a donation towards our efforts in the Kingdom. I believe at last tally we were around $180.00, thats about $180.00 shy.

*Maybe we should go public?

I feel like the widow woman with pennies. I did the paypal for $5 and when I get money to spare I shall give more I promise.

This is the type of ministry to which it is a pleasure to give! It is SOOOO hard to find decent fellowship these days, that sometimes the PB is the only thing keeping me going! Of course I'm practically broke, but I'll do what I can...

Thanks Chris. As the board grows, it is creating costly changes. Eventually, if God wills, we may eventually need our own server.........

Just an FYI as to the monies brought in for the board:

We brought in, 4 months ago, $180

We have spent 80 of that $180 leaving us $100.

We have gained 3 $5 donations today making it $114 (paypal takes out a little).

The cost of the board is $30 a month now since we have so many members and the gigs are being "eaten up".

Any help in this area would be greatly appreaciated.

$5 donations can be found here:

Larger donations can be made here (and specify the donation by email to me if you can help with more):

Quick question. Are the Puritan Board and A Puritans Mind considered the same entity for funding purposes? Or must we donate to them seperately?

Why doesn't the Paypal allow you enter and amount instead of just $5.00?

I wanted to contribute more but didn't feel like pushing the thing a bunch of times. Anyways, inform me of my ignorance or maybe ask Pay Pal to put in varying amounts. Thanks

If you can't tell, I love this site. I am learning so much. And having fun while doing it.:banana:My prayer life is growing again also. Thanks guys.

It is like a college education without the credit. For instance, read Calvin and Turretin and then read Webmaster's thoughts on it. At the same time, I second PC's question, how do you give more?

You give more by sending a check to Matt and/or Scott. Don't send multiple Paypals. Each paypal has a small fee related to it, and there is no reason to make multiple fees.

Perhaps Matt could make the Paypal donation a non-static, flexible amount.

To begin with, the Puritan Board does want to thank all those whom gave donations in the previous year to support the up-keep of this ministry. God is surely glorified here and we thank Him for his graces and provision. At present the funds have again run dry. We are paying on a month to month basis; I believe it is $30 per month with our host. Matt will be putting together a few additional Paypal buttons where one, if led, could make a donation to this effort. I believe previously we only had a $5 button. I encouraged Matt to create a $10 and $20 button as some of you desired to give more than the $5.
Suggestion: Instead of buying a book this month, consider giving to our cause. The amount of biblical wisdom and data that is here within our archives is vast and will be a future profit to yourselves as well as future generation. We are just a click away. Please pray about giving to this cause.

In Christ,

Scott Bushey/Dr. C. Matt McMahon
