TSB is a non-profit organization, ran by 100% volunteers (gamers for gamers). Even though everything in TSB is free (and we intend to keep it that way), we rely on donations to lift the burden on those who pay for it all.

Want to help us?

TSB lives on donations from the community to help pay for the community. So effectively the community helps itself to sustain itself.

We understand that not everyone has the ability to donate, but if only half our members donate $2 per year, we could survive without anyone having to fill the deficit gap.

NOTE: Our financial year runs from January 1st until December 31st. All donations count towards the CURRENT year, and your perks (if not renewed) will last until December 31st of the current year.

Patreon

If you can spare a small amount per month instead of per year, please consider a Patreon subscription. In the end, we have to pay the bills per month, not per year.

Patreon Donors have extra perks, of which the most important is:

– Exclusive chance to win Steam Giftcards from leftover funds at the end of the year!

*= Amount in Dollars is fluctuating based on the current exchange rate (± $1.20 to €1) and may be inaccurate; the amount in Euro’s is leading and always correct.

Note: For those not so financially gifted; the important amount is the deficit. The deficit is the amount of money we have to cough up but actually don’t have.
