Posted under fundraiser, donation drive, 2017, RF Generation


Our annual donation drive starts today!  Be sure to hit that donation button and show this great site some love.  And don't forget, for every $10 you donate, you will receive a ticket for this year's raffle!

Keep in mind that RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, not-for-profit site. All database contributions come from member submissions and our unpaid staff works hard to update and improve database content, keep front page articles fresh and informative, and produce podcasts for your listening pleasure. Unfortunately, the costs associated with running and maintaining this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our site moving forward into 2018. All donations will go directly to our server and site improvement account. This year our goal is to raise at least $1500 by the end of February. I will provide updates on the front page throughout the month to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal and will also thank all donors by name for their contributions (donation amounts will be kept private).

Thank you for your continued love and support,

The staff at RF Generation

Tomorrow, we officially kick off our annual RF Generation Community Donation Drive (though all donations today also count toward our total raised!).  Our goal this year is to raise at least $1500 by February 28, 2017. This money will be used to pay server costs, site improvements, convention advertising, and any additional funds will also be put toward future hosting expenses. We hope that you will consider contributing to keep RF Generation a free, fun, and useful site for yourself, other members, and those who haven't been fortunate enough to find us yet. We only ask that you donate what you can and even a small amount, like a few bucks, goes a long way and is very appreciated.

Donations are accepted via PayPal and you can donate by following this link:  http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypalPLEASE be sure to PM me your RF Generation handle and the email address you used to donate (or include your screen name with your donation via PayPal) so that we can thank you on the front page and determine your number of raffle tickets; only your handle will be used and all donation amounts are private. 

Speaking of raffle tickets, for those of you who donate at least $10, you will be entered into a raffle for some fantastic prize lots donated by our generous members.  We are currently still gathering donations and putting them into lots, so as soon as these are finalized, they will be posted. If any of you are interested in donating prizes for this year's raffle, please reach out to singlebanana via PM.  Rules for this raffle are listed below. 

Thank you for your donations to the site and we hope that RF Generation will remain your #1 choice for tracking your collection for years to come!

__________________________________________________________________________

RAFFLE RULES:
For every $10 donated, that donor will receive a ticket for the raffle (i.e. if you donate $40, you will receive 4 entries). At the end of the donation drive, names will be randomly drawn from the entries (drawing to be videoed) and winners will be allowed to select the lot of their choosing based on draw order. For instance, the first name drawn will select their lot first, the second name drawn will select their lot second, and so on; the last name drawn will receive the final, remaining lot. Participants will only be allowed to win one (1) lot, so if your name is drawn more than once, you will retain your highest selection position and another name will be selected.  Winners should expect to pay the cost of shipping for their items unless the prize donor is willing to ship for free.

I know that everyone is excited to know the results of our RF Generation 2016 Fund Drive. I am very happy to announce that not only did we make our goal of $1000......... WE CRUSHED IT! Over the month of February, we raised a total of $1423.24!!  The staff and I are extremely pleased with these results and are excited about another great upcoming year on the site. Our members truly drive this site and we can't thank all of you who donated enough for your generosity.  Personally, I was overwhelmed by all of the awesome private messages from people telling me how much they enjoyed the site and how invaluable of a tool it was. There were several "lurkers" who donated generous amounts who I got to meet, and I heard from many of our old members who though they have been quiet for some time, made sure to come "home" to donate. Thank you, thank you, one and all!

At this time, the staff at RF Generation would like to take a moment to thank the rest of our members who donated since the last update and helped push us over the $1000 threshold:

Prior to the release of this post, I will be sending out PMs to every donor who donated at least $10 to verify your donation amount and the number of tickets that will be placed into the raffle for you. PLEASE reply to this PM and let me know if your donation amount is correct (if you haven't already done so).  If you donated to the fund drive this month and have not received, a PM from me, as of this post, PLEASE send me a PM so that we can confirm your donation amount and get you the appropriate number of tickets for the raffle.  The quicker I can get donation amounts verified, the quicker I can conduct the raffle. If you have questions regarding the raffle, you can find more details here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16247.0.

GRAND TOTAL: $1423.24

Well, we are now 2/3 of the way through the month, and are getting even closer to reaching our goal of $1000.  We still need one BIG push to make goal, so if you are planning on donating this year, now is the time!

We are over halfway through the month, and are getting closer to reaching out goal of $1000.  As of today, we are a little behind schedule and are almost up to 50% of our goal with a total donation amount of $493.70. Remember, we will be taking donations for the fund drive through the month of February (you can donate here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypal), so be sure to donate during this time to get in on the raffle of great prizes donated by our staff. You can find more details regarding the rules of the raffle and how to enter here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16247.0

Some of you might be wondering, "Why should you donate to RF Generation?"  Our kind and hard working Technical Director, bickman2k dug up this classic, New Year's post from our Site Director, NES_Rules, detailing some site goals he wanted to hit back in 2010: http://www.rfgeneration.c...ts-2009-1258.php#comments.  These goals included:

50,000 total games;
4,000 total hardware entries;
60,000 scans; and
30,000 screenshots.

Compare these goals to our current site numbers after 2015. Just look at how we've grown in 5 years since those goals were set!  Today our database houses:

Over 103,000 total games;
Over 7,500 total hardware entries;
Over 130,000 scans; and
Over 67,000 screenshots.

These numbers speak volumes about our site members and the hard work and dedication they put into our database (not to mention our staff who looks over and approves each submission). And don't forget, our site is and has always been ad-free and is run solely on the donations from our members.  Also, if you haven't checked out our mobile app for Andriod, get on that!  There is no better way to track your collection while searching for games out in the wild or while at a convention. I've heard great reports on Twitter from people at MagFest who are using it.

The staff at RF Generation would like to take a moment to thank those who have donated so far:

Cobra

As we do every year, it's once again time to support a good cause and give back to RF Generation. RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, non-profit site in which all database contributions come from member submissions. Our unpaid staff works hard to update and improve database content, keep front page articles fresh and informative, and work tirelessly on podcasts for your listening pleasure. However, the costs associated with running this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our servers running into 2017. All donations will go directly to our server account and our goal is to raise at least $1000 by the end of February 29, 2016, which combined with donations from the previous year, will keep us going through 2017. I will provide updates on the front page throughout February to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal and thank all donors by name for their contributions.

Starting February 1st, we ask that you donate any amount you can, if you are able. As an added incentive, our generous staff has once again donated some very nice items to raffle off to donors who contribute at least $10. An explanation of the raffle rules are below. Raffle prize lots will be announced a few days prior to the beginning of the fund drive, since we are still getting those together. However, I can say without a doubt that the donations this year are fantastic and include systems, video games, board games, and video game memorabilia, among other things!
