Kind Donation

$3
per month
This tier allows us to pay for our domain every year, host our emails, and still have $1.25/month left over from if one person donates. It's not a lot, by any means, but it does give us a ton to work with.

Sustainable Development

$6
per month
This tier allows us to pay for domains and basic VPS services. Every donation to this tier keeps the project in high maintainability. Without donations of this tier, we could not afford the domain and VPS together without external revenue sources.

Strong Development

$12
per month
With this, if one person donates this amount per month, here is what we can get: a $5/month VPS from Vultr that gives us so much more leeway with what we can do with it (including actual ISO hosting without the need for Mediafire), ownership of potabi.com, and host our emails while still having $5.25 to spare on other parts of the project every single month.

Advanced Development

$24
per month
If one person donates this amount per year, we get everything stated in the "Strong Development" tier but with $17.25 a month available for us to work with. We can use this to get another team member, expand our VPS, and still have $11/month to spare.

Beyond Development

$50
per month
Genuinely, this tier empowers us to advertise the product we have. We could genuinely keep development up as smoothly, with a small team, and actual resources to keep the project running, if one person donates only to this tier.

About Potabi

We are the Potabi Developers. Potabi is a free, open-source, FreeBSD-based operating system to be an alternative to Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Seriously, a small donation gets us a long way. Let's show the proof.
Variables:
M = monthly donations
D = number of developers with email access
V = VPS costs monthly

Total Monthly Income: ((M)12-12(D)-9-12(V))/12
Let's say we had $25 of income with two devs and using the $5/month VPS fees. We would still have $17.25 a month to work with. To double check we can use monthly costs (M-D-(9/12)-5).

Genuinely, small donations go far for us, and even if we can't always afford the stuff we need, it still helps. Thank you.

Also, to explain the variables:
M is total donations, but is also usable for monthly donation counts as we use it in the tiers. V is based on Vultr prices, depending on whether or not we can afford them.
Goals
$0 of $600 per month
We want to get specialized hardware for builds in hopes that we can better support the project, along with LiSoSy, another project by the Potabi Foundation.
