Please donate to help the Gunroom

We have not needed to hold a fundraising appeal for HMS Surprise.org and the Gunroom mailing list for a number of years. However, we have used up our reserves and so we must come back and ask for your financial assistance again this year.

We are holding a limited time appeal for funds to maintain our website domains alive and to pay the operating expenses to our website hosting service while still leaving us with a reserve to cover any future payments.

This year we are again asking you to generously donate a few dollars, pounds, or any other currency to keep the bank accounts topped up so we can keep HMS Surprise and the Gunroom afloat.

We are using PayPal, as this allows you to pay over the internet through your PayPal account or by credit/debit card through PayPal. There are no additional fees to you, the site is secure and we will not keep any records of your details to maintain your privacy. To make a payment, please click here:


After you have clicked on the button above, to pay using a PayPal account, click on the "Donate" button.  To pay without a PayPal account, click on the "Donate with a Card" button and fill in the credit/debit card form.

Please note that PayPal will charge us 2.89% + $0.49 for each transaction.

If you prefer not to use PayPal, please contact the treasurer, skydaver[at]gmail[dot]com, for more information.  He can help you to donate via Square, Apple Pay or Google Pay (for example).

Contributions to this appeal in furtherance of its goals are welcome; please note, however, that we are not a charitable organization in any jurisdiction and cannot issue receipts for tax purposes.
