Finances of OxfordRomance
The startup, running, and future costs of RUO (in its various guises at different universities) are all met by Richard in person, with the exception of some money donated by Vodafone to cover publicity in Oxford. As a result, what began as a small site in Cambridge, hosted on part of someone else's computer has grown into a mammoth organisation, which eats more time and money than a large time-and-money-eating animal.
This is just about sustainable at the moment, but may not remain so indefinitely. However, we know that:
The site is offered to you freely. Nothing is expected in return, although I do like to hear your opinions.
If you would like to offer your time, then please contact Cupid. Needless to say, if you have money to give to charity, then we are a good way for you to exercise your philanthropy!
Thank you very much.
