Donations to IWVPA

The International War Veterans Poetry Archives (IWVPA) is a NON PROFIT project that was conceived in January 2001 and has been, and continues to be, funded, maintained, upgraded, and managed by me.

My name in Anthony W. Pahl OAM and I’m a 20+ year veteran of the Royal Australian Air Force (1967-1988) during which I saw service in Vietnam as a Helicopter Gunner (1969-1970) and in Malaysia (1973-1976).

I DO NOT sell advertising to support this site and I DO NOT sell names and addresses to third parties (refer IWVPA Terms of Use and Privacy Policy). There are NO POP-UP advertisements and there is no registration fee required for participation.

These commitments have always been, and will continue to be, unconditional and non-negotiable because the importance of retaining independence and not to be beholden to anybody (individual or organisation). It is on this basis that inclusion of ALL war/veteran related writings are displayed, without fear or favour, on the website.

At the suggestion of several IWVPA literary contributors and after much soul-searching, I have decided to include a donation facility on the site with the view of using the funds to defray some of the costs associated with the project. Most particularly these donations will be utilised to expedite upgrades that are becoming necessary because of the unexpected “success” of the site. However, regardless of whether or not donations are received, the site and the project will continue, and necessary upgrades will be implemented as funds become available through personal savings.

If you feel that you are able to contribute, please do so in the full knowledge that:

  1. Donations will be used solely for the upkeep and improvement of the IWVPA Website,
  2. No preferential treatment will be forthcoming with regards to any literary submission,
  3. Donations will NOT be publicly acknowledged.

Regardless of whether or not a donation is made, please be assured that all literary submissions will be treated equally and in accordance with the IWVPA Submissions Guidelines.
