Myswag's Bank Balance
« on: May 07, 2020, 01:04:25 PM »
Jillsy what would be the chances of displaying this information on an ongoing basis (maybe in the Merchandise section) as a sticky or pinned to the top somewhere so that we can all be reminded and all easily see how things are travelling financially? Possibly also display in the same page how we are travelling in regards to the required target that is needed to keep the forum going. That way we get a visual reminder and can then decide to throw a few bucks as we wish to help


Righto Folks,

As requested by Rodt, below is a bit of summary of Myswag's financial status.  I will endeavour to update it regularly.

Opening Balance 01/01/2020
+$1146.64

+$  101.04 Incoming (Server Donations, Merchandise Purchases and Bank Interest Received)
- $  189.00 Outgoing (Server Fee)
=$1058.68

February
+$   001.00 (Server Donation - thanks Fizzie!)
- $   305.25 (Server Fee, Bank Fee, Purchase of Polo Shirts that had been ordered by Swaggers)
=$754.43

March
+$   297.00 (Server Donations & Merchandise Purchases)
- $   540.53 (Server Fee x 2, PayPal Fees, Screen Printing for Polos, PO Box Fee)
=$510.90

April
+$  141.00 (Server Donations & Merchandise Purchases)
- $  192.67 (Server Fee & Paypal Fee)
=459.23

May
+$   668.00 (Server Donations & Merchandise Purchases)

=$1773.72

July
+$134.30 (Server Donations & Merchandise Purchases)
- $193.92 (Server Fee & Paypal Fees)
=$1714.10

August (up to including 10th of August)
+$176.00 (Server Donations & Merchandise Purchases)

=$1582.75 Closing Balance

Just a reminder that, contrary to popular belief, Myswag is privately owned (and privately funded when the "kitty" needs a top up) by Brett. Businesses don't pay to advertise in the Showroom Section and people who advertise in the Classifieds Section are not charged to do so etc. In recent years we have had a couple of Premium Sponsors come on board which has been a MASSIVE help financially however server fees, accountancy fees, tax, restocking of Member Stickers and Coolers etc all adds up.  If you enjoy your time here and are keen for Myswag to have a long life, you are more than welcome to make a donation to the Server Fund through the Myswag.org Online Store (see the picture below). All donations, great and small, will be more than appreciated and will be directly responsible for helping to keep Myswag online.  Just think, if every member donated just $1 each, it would be enough to pay the Server Fees for 11 years




Of course, you could also purchase some Myswag.org Merchandise from our great range :cheers:.

Have updated the figures again...thanks Swaggers!!!  You guys are awesome!

Just a reminder though...please DO NOT DONATE OR DON'T FEEL OBLIGATED TO DONATE if you are under financial stress from COVID-19!!! 

I know of at least one Swagger who has donated this month who had their hours cut but donated anyway. The donation was gratefully received Mate (you know who you are) however it really wasn't expected  :cheers:
