The Lewisville Texan Journal is an all-volunteer effort, but even though we don't pay our writers, we do have expenses to bring this service to the community.
Among the things we have to pay for:
- Website Hosting
- Domain Name Renewal
- Syndicated Cartoons
- Syndicated Columns
- Image Rights
- Service Fees for Online Services
- Video and Photographic Equipment and Accessories
- Public Information Fees
- Investigative and Information Service Fees
- Office Supplies
- Subscriptions to Periodicals
Ads and sponsorships cover a good chunk of our yearly expenses, and generous donors kick in the rest. But we would like to be able to offer more to the community. And we refuse to plaster the page with annoying ads and pop-ups that get in the way or make it hard to read.
We don't like to ask for money, and certainly welcome everyone to keep reading even if you can't chip in.
If you would like to offer some financial support we appreciate donations through PayPal. Just click the button and donate any amount:
If you own a business, we hope you'll consider advertising with the Lewisville Texan Journal.
Thanks for your support! We love our generous donors!
- In 2014, LTJ really needs a new camera. We're looking to buy a digital SLR with a decent zoom lens and both manual and auto focus. We are continually frustrated with the results from the $200 Fuji that we use right now. A decent camera, we think would cost about $600. Every time we've set aside money, or received a donation towards getting a new one, we've ended up with extra expenses, or a downturn in ad sales. If you are upgrading and want to hook us up with your old camera, or are just feeling very generous, we would be eternally grateful. (New camera on the way! - THANKS!)

For a limited time: Chip in $25 or more, and we'll make sure you get a Lewisville Texan Journal coffee mug* or T-shirt. Just let us know when you make your donation, and make sure we have your address to deliver it to. If you want the T-shirt, let us know what size. (Adult S,M,L,XL,2X)
*These mugs are limited-edition photo mugs depicting that nifty rainbow that formed after a storm earlier this year. You can see the Lewisville water tower in the distance. We have 16 left, and when they are gone, that is it for this design.
We appreciate you. Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for any help you care to provide.
