About HV Open

HV Open was created 15 years ago (as MHVLUG) to provide a forum to discuss and promote open source and open technologies in the Hudson Valley. When we share we grow together. 

We have a few expenses of the course of the year. These include about $200 for our meetup subscription, $100 for stickers and the like, web hosting (which is contributed as part of an existing server) and recently we contracted a local designer to do the new HV Open logo. There are also the occasional dives into cables for presenting, and we're still trying to figure out the right audio gear to properly mic speakers (especially in the constraints of Rocky 300). In the past these were paid for out of pocket by me (Sean Dague). During the rebrand folks asked who paid for stuff, and if they could contribute in some way. This patreon is a way to make that possible.

Any little bit helps. So please consider contributing. See more of what we do at hvopen.org
$7.48 of $20 per month
When we reach $20 / month, the meetup fees are covered. Woot!
