Current Funding (June 2015)

Dear Heat Community & Patrons,

Our first two months of seeking support made good steps, during May we were funded at $25 and in June we were funded at $26.

A HUGE THANK YOU to the patrons who have pledged to us during these two months! Without your help and support HeatFinder's services would have been in jeopardy.

This level does allow us to continue to operate under "stop gap" measures, it unfortunately does not cover our core operating expenses. As a result in early June we had to take down Public Server 2, this will save us approximately $10/month and allows us to drop our current funding goal from $70 to $60. If we reach the $60 funding level we will add a goal of $70 so we can re-launch Public Server 2.

We need your help, we appreciate you taking the time to read this open letter and considering our request. HeatFinder has always been and continues to be funded through donations and operated by volunteers. Today we are facing rising monthly and yearly expenses for things like servers, websites, bandwidth, electricity and domains and as a result we are facing possible service level cut backs. With your support, even if it's just $1 per month you can help us improve our service, incentivize developers in our community, increase and improve league racing and ultimately grow our 14 year old Heat Community! We aren't asking for much, consider skipping one morning coffee or one energy drink during the month and donate that cost to HeatFinder... You can donate as little as $1 and your dollar will make a huge difference!

We are asking for your support through pledges or donations, we have several goals setup on our Patreon page that begin with funding our current monthly expenses. Our first goal is $60/month and is necessary to maintain our current level of services. We are collecting pledges and donations through a great service called Patreon at With Patreon you control how and when your pledge (donation) is made, you can adjust your pledge or remove your pledge at any time. Patreon is a crowdfunding company founded in 2013 in San Fransisco by Jack Conte from Pomplamoose of YouTube fame and is often used by Podcasters, Musicians and Artists to support their creations. Think of it like an ongoing Kickstarter but instead of funding a single project with a single goal and single payout you are pledging an ongoing amount per month (as little as just $1). This pledge can be adjusted or removed at any time. If you want to make a one time donation simply pledge for a month and remove your pledge after your account has been charged shortly after the beginning of the month. Making your donation (pledge) is quick, simple and requires little information, you can even pledge via PayPal!

Please consider donating as little as $1 a month here...

Thank You,
