If you want to make a small “tip” or donation, either on a one-time or a monthly basis, you can use Ko-Fi — you can set the dollar amount, and can pay using your credit card or paypal. Best of all, Ko-Fi is a free service so all your money (less banking charges) goes directly to supporting my creative work. Thank you! Click here to “buy me a coffee” through Ko-Fi.
If you want to make a recurring donation with membership benefits, then Patreon is for you. With three membership tiers starting at $10/month, you can receive benefits including monthly zoom meetings with me, study materials for mystical and contemplative classics, and first look access to current and future writing projects. 15% discount if you opt for an annual membership. Click here to become a patron through Patreon.
Basically, if you want to make a small gift or a one-time donation at any level, use Ko-Fi. If you want to make a larger, recurring gift (and receive some member rewards in exchange), then go with Patreon. Either way, I thank you!
