Cyberspace Communications' mission is to provide free access to Internet services and to support open, public discussion forums. We keep Grex's costs as low as we can by using mostly second-hand equipment and lots of volunteer work, but we still need to bring in some money to pay for Internet connectivity, phones, co-location fees, and to keep the system growing. We charge no fees for our services and run no advertisements on our system. We have no government funding and no large corporate sponsors. All our money comes from voluntary donations from our charitable users like you. If you can afford to donate something to help us, we hope you will do so.

The best way to help support Grex is to become a member. Benefits include:

Cyberspace Communications, Inc.
P.O. Box 4432
Ann Arbor, MI 48106-4432 (USA)

Be sure to tell us your Grex login name. If you pay other than by personal check, please include a photocopy of some ID. (As a membership organization, the law requires that we be able to identify our members, but we do not publicize your identity.)

If you are paying for three months or more, you can request a free copy of our Wizard in Training user handbook.

Paying Dues by Credit Card

You can pay membership dues by credit card through the Paypal system.

Note: if you are starting a new membership via Paypal, you will need to either verify your Paypal account or send Grex's treasurer a copy of some form of ID, as stated above. Here's an explanation of why Grex requires ID from its members.
