In order to keep the site running, an administrator reviews every submission, a developer makes necessary updates to the site, and funds are provided to pay for the domain name, hosting service, and plugin used to run the calendar. If you would like to support this community resource, consider making a tax-deductible donation to our general fund to supplement the work and cost it takes to keep the site running.
Donations will also go towards purchasing additional features and functionality, such as:
EVENTS CALENDAR PRO – $400
Adding this plugin will allow us to add custom fields, default content, and recurring events to the submission form. Donations to the feature will pay for a three-year license and the cost of a developer to implement the new features with our current calendar.
FILTER BAR – $400
Supporting this plugin will give make our existing event filtering more robust and user-friendly. Users will be able to easily search for events by event category, tag, venue, organizer, day of the week, time of day, neighborhood, and price of admission. Donations to this feature will pay for a three-year license and the cost of a developer to implement the new features with our current calendar.
