ActionSkills Hosting CrowdFunder

While the internet encourages freedom of information, keeping websites online isn’t free. For underfunded grassroots groups, fast, reliable and secure website hosting can be prohibitively expensive.

We provide hosting and website maintenance for activist and community groups for FREE. We also manage and pay for domain names for numerous groups.

Please support our work by donating and/or promoting our Crowdfunder
