While contributions are appreciated each month for our continuing costs, you receive the upgrade permanently for just one contribution!
Contributions can be made here: Go VIP (securely handled through paypal.) You do not need a PP account. PP accepts most major credit cards.
You can access our roster of VIP members here: Supporters List (must be logged in to view)
Thank you for your support!
Frequently asked questions:
Q) I've contributed $5 on more than a few occasions. Do I qualify for an upgrade?
A) Yes. Contributions made are cumulative. For example if you've donated $5 four times during your time with us here at HFC you would qualify for the Copper VIP Upgrade.
Q) Can I upgrade from one package to another?
A) Yes. Upgrading from one package to the next, you need only to supply the monetary difference.
Q) I've made out of pocket contributions to the community. Does this count towards any upgrades?
A) Yes. For example; if you paid for services like having tshirts made up for advertisement purposes that cost would apply towards an upgrade. Simply contact me with the details.
Q) I'd like to sponsor a friends upgrade. Is that possible?
A) Yes. PM me with the username (forum name) and I'll add the specified package to their account. You can remain anonymous if you choose (like a "secret santa") - specify if so.
Q) Are VIP members considered more valuable than general members?
A) No. Every member of HFC is valued greatly. While contributions help us to offset our operating costs we understand that some of the greatest contributions from members are not necessarily monetary in nature.
