As you are aware, this website http://acharya.org has been a flagship site for all things Srivaishnava, for more than 18 years. The site and its contents have been provided purely as a service to Srivaishnavas globally. While a lot of effort goes into maintaining and updating the site, it is done as kainkaryam only.
During this time, many people have approached me asking to help with the website - either financially or with its contents. But so far I have not taken up anyone on this.
I also get a lot of requests asking for support either financially or via announcements in the website to generate funds, for Srivaishnava causes. I have taken some of these up at a personal level but have not used the site for any request thus far. And I do not plan to do this in the future either.
However, given the reach of the website, adiyEn would like to see if I can use that to crowd source and support Srivaishnava causes - Divyadesams and events.
As such, adiyEn would like to request visitors to consider making a small donation monthly - no more than a US dollar or Rs 100 a month. If enough people subscribe, we will be able to support several divyadesams and events.
This is a request only and the website will remain free for use for everyone regardless. Any money collected and used will be made transparent to every donor. If the volume becomes high, adiyEn will register a Non-Profit organization and funds will be managed and disbursed through the organization.
For those who are interested - Please contact me directly at my email address (email@example.com) - and adiyEn will share further details.
