If you've donated to MUG this year, skip ahead. If you haven't, kindly read on. Two years ago, we moved MUG from an ad-based site to one that is fully reader-supported. We still think the voluntary, pay-what-you-like model suits MUG's temperament best. But this year we're well behind where we need to be. Our annual budget is $50,000 and to date, we've raised $29,057. A contribution of any size makes a big difference. We suggest an annual 'subscription' to MUG of $15. Whether you give more or less, we hope you will give something.
