Link to VHSG Donation and Expenses Details

Although Virtual Homeschool Group is all volunteer and has no paid staff, we do have significant expenses necessary to keep our courses running. Each month, we have around $1,310.00 in monthly expenses to keep our site running. Some months are a bit more since we have some costs that hit once a year. For MINIMUM expense months, here is a summary of where our costs go: •$295.00 - New server for new websites (just had to increase plan to add more storage)
• $550.00 - Old server for old websites (will go away once old site is fully transferred) •$190.00 - Online classrooms
• $175.00 - Help Desk •$100.00 - Other software/subscriptions/fees (this can be higher some months)
• \$1,310.00  TOTAL MONTHLY EXPENSES IN THE LOWEST EXPENSE MONTHS
This year and last, it has been challenging to get enough donations to keep up with expenses as we have to pay for two expensive servers.  We hope to close down the old server hopefully after December, but that depends on admin team work and personal schedules.  In addition to volunteering significant hours with VHSG, we have jobs outside the home and homeschool our own kids.  We can only work so fast and the items left to transfer are high level things only a few of us can do.

Thank you so much to those of you that have already donated.  Your help is appreciated so much!

We do encourage families to consider making a small monthly donation.  A small monthly donation may be easier on your budget than a larger one time donation.  With many families giving even a small donation, it goes a long way toward keeping our site up and running.
