Financial Statement

Introduction:  Although operating as a "not for profit" in financial terms, The Victory Horticultural Library and Seed Bank is not currently a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation. The resources necessary to create and manage a separate legal entity are more than the Victory Seed Company can bear at this time. It should be additionally noted that the Victory Horticultural Portal is not chartered by any authority, has no constitution, bylaws or written structure. We exist as a historical research and preservation effort.

The accounting below is simply a listing of costs associated with supporting the website and storing the seed collection. Associated with this project are expenses such as postage, supplies, and acquisitions. Currently, all labor is donated. Furthermore, office equipment (other than specific network or storage hardware) is owned by the Victory Horticultural Group, LLC or the Victory Seed Company and used free of charge.

Donations:  Any donations, no matter how small, will be accounted for here and directly applied to the maintenance and improvement of this work. If you would like to make a donation using a credit card, click here. We do not have a separate bank account so please make checks or money orders payable to the Victory Seed Company and mail to:

Victory Horticultural Library
c/o The Victory Seed Company
PO Box 192
Molalla, Oregon  97038

Sponsors:  If you are a business interested in getting your name in front of a very targeted group of people, please consider using part of your marketing budget to support this work.  Contact us for more information.

5/19/05 Google AdSense Commission (Note:  For some undisclosed reason, Google cancelled our account and banned us from participating in the program.  All they would say was that our pages were creating invalid clicks. No matter what I said or asked how to prevent it or correct the problem, the kept sending the same generic, boiler plate about not being able to disclose their methods.  Very frustrating. I have personally boycotted Google advertising and added a cool add-in to my browser called Adblock Plus that keeps advertisements from showing on the pages I am browsing.)
