Donating to CPDL

CPDL will always be a non-profit project that depends on the donations of many people, in the form of time, skill, server space. Nevertheless, there are fixed costs (software, hardware, access charges) which I pay out of pocket. These costs have amounted to ~$2,000/year, and the cost is growing as the CPDL site grows. There are two primary ways to make a monetary donation:

  • Partner Affiliation w/SheetMusicPlus: If you need to buy music that is not available here, click on the SheetMusicPlus link on the CPDL main page, and 8% of your purchase will go to CPDL.
  • Monetary Donations: Checks can be sent to CPDL at the address below:

Rafael Ornes (c/o CPDL)
696 Boynton Ave.
San Jose, CA 95117

All money will be used to pay the fixed costs of running the website, and an account will be posted each year (in the past CPDL has received ~$50 in unsolicited donations yearly).

Advertising with CPDL

Banner Advertising:

(This may not work with ChoraWiki) CPDL is now offering online banner advertising. The rate is based on 'page impressions.' A page impression of your ad is counted each time when your ad appears on a CPDL web page. Users can click on your advertisement to be taken directly to your Web site. The CPDL website lately has received ~20,000 page views per day. Banner ads are evenly cycled through these pages. Rates are as follows: Advertising Rates (in US dollars):

  • 1,000 page Impressions => $ 0.50
  • 10,000 page impressions => $ 5.00
  • 100,000 page impressions => $ 50.00

Advertisers are also given a username and password so that you can monitor the number of page impressions and click-through statistics for your ad. Specifications for the actual ad graphic are as follows: standard "half-banner" size ad graphics (234x60 pixels), some animation is okay, 10K maximum file size.

Attention, all contributors: Banner ads which point to your website can be placed for free on the CPDL site.

If you have questions about banner ads, please contact Rafael Ornes.
