Urgent! We have never needed your support more than now.

Mindat.org needs $75,000 between now and the end of 2018 in order to continue.

You may have heard that one of our most dedicated supporters, who passed away in 2015, left a substantial donation from his estate towards keeping mindat.org alive, and you may have thought that means we don't need your money any more. Unfortunately, we do.

The estate is tied up in the courts (as estates of this size often are). We won an original challenge to our share of the estate in court last year, but this victory is now being appealed meaning significant expense and yet more delay before we can finally get this money to support us.

In the meantime it costs thousands every month to keep mindat.org running (with Jolyon working full-time, hosting costs, other admin expenses etc) and now we have the added expense of legal fees to fight our case.

The community has been incredible at coming to help mindat.org before, and I would not ask you right now for such significant support if it wasn't absolutely essential for our survival - we all want to see mindat.org secure not just for the next few weeks, but for the foreseeable future.

Thank you, and please support us. Every dollar helps.

Total: $75,000
Raised: $2,757

Mindat.org uses the PayPal system to accept electronic payments.

For larger donations you may prefer to do a bank transfer or to post us a check. This also helps reduce the transaction costs for us. Please contact us at info@hudsonmineralogy.org for our bank account details.

Or, you can send a check made payable to mindat.org to:

Hudson Institute of Mineralogy dba Mindat.org
1113 Cambridge Hill Lane
Keswick, VA 22947-2749, USA

If you wish to pay by credit card, use this form, and on the PayPal payment page, click the option that says 'Pay with a debit or credit card'. You do NOT need a PayPal account to pay this way.

Jolyon Ralph, mindat.org founder.
