Thank you for considering a donation to Tolkien Experience!
Up until this point, I have acted as the sole funder of both initiatives, and I have been happy to do so; however, I have reached a point where maintaining the podcast feed and the website are more costly than I anticipated. Honestly, it has grown to be more than I can afford without help. Your support means that I can continue to put time and energy into these endeavors and that they will stay available to everyone.
I know that several of our listeners are so kind and caring that they may give too much. I would ask that you please donate a small amount that you are comfortable with. I have tried very hard to keep the costs of the podcast and the website as low as possible (by using free software to record and edit, for instance) so please know that we do not need grand gestures of support, just small acts of kindness from several people.
All funds received are held in a PayPal account specifically used for paying the fees to maintain the Tolkien Experience Podcast hosting/feed and the my scholarly website which is the main platform for both the Tolkien Experience Podcast and the Tolkien Experience Project.
A couple of important things:
-Neither the Tolkien Experience Project nor the Tolkien Experience Podcast are charities, so this means that your donation is not tax deductible.
-Support does not include any exclusive content or media.
-No transaction fees are paid by buyers. If you would like information about PayPal’s fees to sellers, please see this webpage.

We would like to give a special shout-out to Noam Weiss for his support with funding Tolkien Experience!
