Help fund 2007 Beat The GMAT projects!

by beatthegmat » Fri Nov 24, 2006 3:23 pm
Happy Holidays, everyone! 2006 was a fantastic year for Beat The GMAT. Since launching the forum in April, we have been able to accomplish so much as a community. Here are some highlights:
  • Attracted over 3000 registered members year to date, making Beat The GMAT one of the fastest growing GMAT communities on the Internet.
  • Lined up partnerships with top experts in GMAT preparation and MBA admissions, including Manhattan GMAT and Stacy Blackman Consulting.
  • Distributed over $500 worth of scholarships to deserving members—many of whom would otherwise have had difficulty purchasing GMAT prep materials on their own.
2007 should be an even better year. I’m currently working with our partners to develop a strategy to onboard more GMAT subject-matter experts to the forum to engage with users. I’m also in the midst of developing a new Beat The GMAT Wiki to provide folks a one-stop shop to all the best GMAT resources available on the forum and on the Internet. Finally, I want to provide LARGER and possibly more frequent scholarships to Beat The GMAT members; this is after all a community service project where members should benefit from the profits.

In order to execute these projects effectively, I am asking for some monetary support. As you can see in the Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet statements below, Beat The GMAT is currently experiencing a negative cash flow:

The good news is that I anticipate expenses to be reduced for next year (fingers crossed)--high-cost expense items like Internet Hosting will not appear on the Profit & Loss next year, since I paid for 2 years of service up front in 2006. I hope that reduced expenses would translate to larger scholarships for our members.

Please help support the Beat The GMAT with your donation. Any amount (even $1) will go a long way in making this project thrive. Your donation today is especially timely because right now I am trying to raise funds for the second annual Beat The GMAT Scholarship that will take place in April 2007—I would really like to make the prizes for this scholarship competition even more sizable than they were in 2006.

Thank you so much for helping me build this amazing GMAT community! Happy holidays!

I have received a $50 donation from someone on this forum who wishes to remain anonymous. He requested that this money help people who are in real need of resources...

Thank you very much for your generous donation!
