Donating to RSD Academy is not required. However, if you are using RSD
Academy in any way, you should consider the value of what you are
getting for free. If you are studying on your own at RSD Academy,
keep in mind that a similar course at a brick and mortar school would cost
thousands of dollars. Student loans could put you in debt for many
years. If you are a professor, consider the cost of buying or
licensing such materials from other sources. Please consider donating an appropriate amount
according to your means.
All donations, no matter how small, make a difference. Thank you.
We have reserved space for banner ads at the top of our textbook
pages. We are currently showing ads from Google, but intend to
provide this space to companies that donate to RSD Academy at
Patreon. We have not yet set the required donation level at
Patreon because we need more flexibility than Patreon
allows*. RSD Academy's user base is growing and we need to adapt
to this growth. For more information, please contact us at:
* Patreon does not allow changing reward
levels once they have been set. This policy is in place to avoid confusion. This a good thing, but we need more
flexibility at this time.
