We’ve received a tremendously generous offer! The OTW Development & Membership team has been contacted by a OTW member who would like to support the drive, and who wants to encourage others to support us in the process. They are choosing to remain anonymous, and have promised us a donation of US$3,000 if we can get a matching amount from other donors. That means you can double the impact of your donation!
Building the OTW’s future involves investing in servers — servers that support fanworks at the Archive of Our Own and Open Doors, that allow us to explore and preserve our history and cultures at Fanlore and Transformative Works and Cultures, and that provide stable, fan-owned hosting for new projects, like our Vidding Resource pages. Servers that we own are paramount to furthering the OTW’s goals — which is why we are asking you to donate now, and to help us double the value of your support for our projects.
We’ll be posting regularly to our twitter account over the next few days to let y’all know how much of the challenge amount we’ve raised. You can subscribe to our twitter feed, or just check in to see the news, here: http://twitter.com/otw_news.
