OurCanberra is a not-for-profit and completely free (as in liberty) community. It's free to join, free to use and free to enjoy - with zero pressure to succeed as a business!
Roughly, that means that the community will always have the freedom to express and voice their opinions, share and distribute content and improve the community as a whole - all without obnoxious banner advertisements, sneaky paid content or influence from outside businesses or investors.
In two words, Our Canberra is about: Community first.
Funds raised by donations will be used to maintain Our Canberra's server infrastructure and allow us to steadily improve the community. The Communities planned 2013-14 Budget is set at $15,000, with $8,000 allocated to help extend the reach of the community via traditional print and online advertising.
