APC relies on donations to stay running. The target was hit for 2016, and the goal was reset for 2017.

  • We are only a bit behind, with 75% of the year gone and 68% of our goal reached.
But without further donations, we will be out of funds in just over 3.5 months.
If the members cannot step up to support APC, then we'll have no choice but to shut down, or to make the site a "subscription only" service. Neither of those options are appealing (and the second option likely not workable), but the staff here at APC simply cannot continue to foot the bill for the server.
Please consider donating to help APC continue to be FREE for all to use. Thank you!!!!
