Tabletop Gamers Alliance is a donation-based group. This meetup group was established as Metrowest Board Gaming on September 10th 2013 and then renamed as Tabletop Gamers Alliance on July 7th 2015. The group currently costs $180 per year to run (Meetup.com Subscription Pricing). Active members of this group are asked to each donate $1 (or more) per year to help cover the that cost. Any donations in excess of the cost of the subscription will be applied towards the cost of a running one of the quarterly meetups or a one-off meetup.
Meetup has reinstated the online donation system for groups like us. So, if you have been holding out on tossing in a donation towards our Meetup subscription costs (click the "About Us" link on our Meetup group page to read about them) because you would rather use your debit or credit card for it, you may now use the "Chip in" button (beside the piggy bank on the left side) on our group page to do so.
There are a some caveats with donating online via Meetup's "Chip in" system. First, they do not allow us to customize the "suggested" amounts. You will see buttons for "suggested" amounts of $10, $15, $20, and $50. Do not feel obligated to use those amounts, unless you really want to. There is a box below all of those buttons to specify your own custom amount.
Second, Meetup takes $0.50 + 7.5% in processing fees for each of these transactions. So, my generally recommended donation amount of $1 would be pared down to $0.42! That is why I recommend giving $1.50 instead of $1 when using this new system.
Of course, you can still donate the old-fashioned way by giving your donation in cash directly to das_ninja or to any Event Organizer in the group that is hosting the Meetup you are attending. The event hosts will eventually hand them to me to add to the treasury.
As an additional show of thanks, the members below shall forever be chiseled upon the Wall of Gratitude!
