What does my Patron Pledge cover? For the price of a cup of coffee or two, your assistance helps with the following:
- Your pledge helps to pay for the Newsletter mail service which is not a free service to us.
- It helps pay for this site and all the pages it needs to offer you new product, services and tutorials.
- It does not cover the amount of time for creation, artistic development, learning, writing these elements, education, and supplies ; this takes hundreds of hours and financial costs, but every penny helps and is not only welcomed but is so appreciated.
- GrafXQuest is a profit and angel company which means we try to make profit from our store as well as services, but we also give a LOT away for free. We have been running in the red since 2014 and we need you.
- We currently do not make enough from the site to cover our expenses. This is why we need your assistance. Perhaps one day it will but until then we need you! You can help by passing the word, pinning things you like to Pinterest and liking GrafXQuest on Facebook and following Lady T on Instagram. All of these things can help.
- GrafXQuest helps assist those who are disabled, US veterans and new to our roster, senior citizens, find an out let to sell their art and share their talent. Without your help the site is at risk of coming down. We wish to assist more people of this genre to re-enter the world with renewed purpose and self reliability.
- Yes! This is actually required to be part of the Patron program. We invoice you through PayPal to make your Patronage yearly. Please check the box when signing up to be billed yearly. This is the fastest and easiest way to remember to make your membership yearly. If you do not set it up for yearly, at the end of a year your access to patron areas will come to an end, and you will lose your grandfathered patron guarantee. Our guarantee is that as long as you stay billed yearly your patron price will NOT go up. Your donation can be set up in any amount but the minimum Patron membership starts at $29.99 and should you wish to donate more you only have to "Tip" in an extra amount. (This will cover the approximate additional 7% costs taken out by PayPal in fees). Making any donation amount is appreciated of course but a years' Patron membership activates with the minimum $29.99 and a yearly membership checked off. Keep your yearly membership paid in full within a month of your billing for the next new year, and be grandfathered in against price fluctuation.
- The invoice will be sent yearly from the first time it was set up, to the email you use the first time. Be sure to pay within a month to be eligible for grandfathered pricing.
- This is the best part. For becoming a Patron Member, you get extra benefits, like tailored site support.
- Your own log on to a special Patron Vault that allows you access to free items not available to anyone but other supporting Patron members, this includes areas VIP's do not have access to. This is a continual growing library which has access to years worth of Newsletter freebies launched weekly since 2015 and new items continually launched, a lot with Small standard business licenses included.
- Based on your Patron Pledge amount you will also get a coupon matching your donation up to $50 dollars of your pledge as a % off any merchandise elsewhere in the store including sale items that is good on any and all sales for your entire year pledge term, for each and every sale you check out with. So see something next week you want that just launched? That's great! Use that coupon all over again!
- Click on the Yellow Donation button below. It will take you to PayPal to make your Patron donation.
You do not have to have a PayPal account just an email address and a form of payment. PayPal is a secured way of paying.
