The propose of this campaign is to help raise funds for both our PayPal account and our back up bank account so that if any unexpected emergencies arise we will have the funds necessary to cover those expenses involved. The average balances of our PayPal account goes up and down during the year. In the past we had averaged around $3,000 a month but unfortunately this does need to be increased at times. We do not want to replace your current donations going to the PayPal account, this is just to help us increase what we have already. The goal the board has set is $2,000 or more.


A donation of support would generally be made during the actual campaign start on September 20th, 2020 however we can accept donations anytime leading up to the starting date, and we will include your donation in the totals. You can also make monthly payments via PayPal or by check. We can also arrange to have an invoice sent to you once a month from Paypal if you wish. What you would report to us in the case of monthly donations is the amount you will be paying per month and what that would be for a year. We will include that yearly total in our totals for the campaign. If you are already making monthly payments via PayPal please do not include that amount in the campaign, but if you do increase that amount please let us know.

This is the information we need from you if and when you make a pledge towards this campaign, please copy and paste the below list to your email:


A. The donation amount: $
B. Your avatar name:
C. Your email address:
D. Do you wish public recognition? Yes or No
E. How do you wish to pay for the pledge?
either by PayPal or by mailing a check or money order to our P. O. Box
F. Will this be a single payment or will you pay it monthly?

There will also be several scheduled events such as 3 auctions, games, and dances with DJ and Live performers during which you can show your support for OSgrid. The dates, times and places where these special events will take place will be listed in this forum and in the public plazas of OSgrid. So check back here frequently. We can also accept donations via lindens on Second Life, all you need to do is pay to the avatar OSgridInc Resident any amount you would like to donate to OSgrid. This avatar is set up to receive your donations and goes directly to our Paypal account.


Please make all checks or money orders payable to OSgrid Inc. If you wish to send us a check, a money order or any foreign checks please mail to the following address:

Osgrid, Inc.
2 Heritage Road
Port Wentworth, GA 31407 USA

Thank you for your support. All donations are tax deductible in the United States according to the IRS rules, as OSgrid, Inc is a 501(c)3 Non profit organization. If you have any questions about the above please ask in-world or send an email to and we will respond as quickly as possible.

The actual Fundraising Campaign will be held during the various DJ Dances starting Sunday September 20th, 2020 through Sunday September 27th, 2020 at Event Plaza. You will find a large thermometer there which will indicate in real time what we have received for the campaign. The theme will be Western this year and our DJ's and Performers will be reminding you and our visitors why we need your support for OSgrid during the Dance parties. OSgrid is the main testing grid for opensim, so its important that everyone contribute to its financial health and continued operations regardless if you are a resident or reside on another grid. We thank you for your participation and anything you would like to contribute to its success. - albertlr Landar - Bookkeeper OSgrid, Inc.
