Sponsor Group IUOMA

The IUOMA is free for all members because of the many sponsors that donate to the IUOMA or because of the IUOMA bookshop that brings in money to keep this platform alive & free.

you can visit the bookshop at:

and when you order a few books, a small fee will be going to the IUOMA and you will get some lovely books on Mail-Art.

On this page I will keep IUOMA members up to date on how the financial situation is for IUOMA on NING. According to the new guidelines by NING the hosting costs 588 USD (=539 Euro at current rates) when paid on a yearly basis.

For 2015-2016 : 239 EURO is brought up by members/sponsors (paid for)

For 2016-2017 : 539 EURO is brought up by members/sponsors (paid for)

For 2017-2018 : 539 EURO is brought up by members/sponsors (paid for)

For 2018-2019 : 138 euro needed (401 brought up by members/sponsors)

For 2019-2020 : 539 euro needed

For 2020-2021 : 539 euro needed

Thanks for all the donations! You people keep this platform alive for all!

update : April 24th 2017

The exchange-rate of USD-EUR might change the numbers a bit. And if NING changes it rates again, the table changes too!

Hoorah through 2018! Thank you deeply, Ruud, for all the efforts you put in to making IUOMA what it is. And thanks to all who participate and donate.

In October also some donations came in and the year 2017-2018 is now also almost paid for. We will stay here for quite some time...!

Also with a few returning monthly donations, it seems the IUOMA will stay online for a longer time indeed.

Thanks for the update Ruud. Glad we've received enough for 2017.

In the previous years I also kept lists of sponsors, I only didn't publish them. So the list of sponsors is quite large. They keep IUOMA alive and free for all. I am now working on the list for the next year. When new donations come in they will fill the list for next year.

These sponsors keep the IUOMA alive for the coming year.

Since the new changes on NING for higher prices, the IUOMA will depend more on donations from members. In this group I will keep all informed. The IUOMA network will stay FREE for all members. The donations are just needed to keep paying the hosting. All other tasks (moderating, mentorship) are on a non-profit basis.

Want to support the IUOMA with a financial gift via PayPal?

The money will be used to keep the IUOMA-platform alive. Current donations keep platform online till 1-feb-2019.   If you want to donate to get IUOMA-publications into archives and museums please mention this with your donation. It will then be used to send some hardcopy books into museums and archives. You can order books yourself too at the IUOMA-Bookshop. That will sponsor the IUOMA as well.
