There are a number of ways you can help support the PCDN network as outlined below.
1. Become a Paying Member - The PCDN network has helped impact thousands of individuals and organizations around the world to help connect, inspire, provide sources of funding, scholarships, training and much more. To date out of our 27,100 members around the world, only 700 (which is less than 2.5%) have contributed to the network). While we are grateful for all of the payments to date, to sustain our work we rely on your support and would like to increase member support to at least 40% of the entire membership. We are now asking you to consider paying what you can in any amount ranging from $1 and up. For more details see the Support Page.
2. Considering Placing an Ad on PCDN - To date advertisers on PCDN include leading universities and organizations from around the world including Georgetown University, University of Notre Dame, University of Edinburgh, Brandies University, TechChange and many others. Advertisers are reporting 10%-25% (or greater) increase in their web traffic through PCDN Ads which results in new clients, students, etc. For more info see the advertising page.
