Dear reader, I write this to ask if you would be willing to support freefincal with a monetary contribution.
As you know the content at freefincal is open-source and free for personal and professional use and can be adapted at will (under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-alike License). I do not run ads as I believe that will compromise the integrity of the site.
While I am more than happy and financially capable (thank God) of paying for hosting expenses, I would certainly appreciate your support in this regard. More importantly it will allow freefincal activities to significantly expand.
I am seeking monetary support for expenses/activities like (but not limited to)
1) Web-hosting of the blog and related content
2) video recording of investor meets and creation of video content
3) purchase of data (eg. CRISIL indices) and/or analytical software for research and analysis.
4) Software and/or services that can make freefincal tools more web-friendly
5) Development of web-based tools from the ground-up.
Contributions received each financial year will be fully used for such activities. I do not intend to generate an 'income' via this.
If you appreciate this proposal, please consider making a contribution to help freefincal become a reader-funded DIY resource.
Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply to freefincal and all contributions received.
1) Freefincal will continue to remain an open-source, free resource for calculators, tools and analysis. That is, things will remain as is.
2) Contributions do not entitle anyone to any kind of personal financial advice or investment advice. I am not interested, qualified or allowed to offer such advice.
3) If any database or software is purchased with these contributions, it will always be with a single-user license. Meaning these resources cannot be shared with readers either publically or privately. It is impractical to buy a multi-user license to circumvent this.
4) Contributions do not entitle anyone to demand research reports, control the content, online presence of freefincal and how the contributions should be used. That is, you cannot expect me to analyze, write or create calculators that you want just because you made a contribution. I am open to suggestions from readers as always, but to implement them or not is my prerogative.
Sorry about this. Had to be said.
Make a contribution via the instapay option of instamojo.com
It is easy to use and fast.
You can contribute any amount you want.
Once you enter the amount, the purpose entry will show up. You can enter freefincal here.
Ps. The "how to select an equity mutual fund" series will continue on Sunday.
