As you know, the content on the LSC Scoop website is free of charge and always has been. It’s never been a subscription-based product and we don’t want it to be, because that might mean some of you would drop out of the audience, which we don’t want.
Once a year, in August, we announce an “honor system” program, for you to respond to, or not respond to, as you wish. We share your contributions with folks who put significant time, talent and energy into the LSC Scoop to help improve the product every day. Without their efforts, the website wouldn’t be what it is today, and probably wouldn’t even exist.
What we ask for is modest, I think: a contribution of whatever you feel is appropriate, if you think it’s worthwhile. We have received donations in the past anywhere from $10 to $500. Every little bit helps, but please: Don’t feel compelled to participate. Take part in this only if you want to. We are simply looking for ways to continue making the LSC Scoop in a world where advertisers have all but dried up in a tough economy.
The easiest way to donate is with any major credit card through Paypal. Simply click the "DONATE" button at the top right of this page to do so.
Or you can send a check or money order to:
With your positive response to this “honor system” program, we’ve never had to seriously think about heading down a subscription-based path. That said, I want to reiterate that I never hold it against anyone who chooses not to participate. This is 100% voluntary.
Thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support of the LSC Scoop.
