Is ElderHope for profit or not-for-profit?

It's a for-profit organization. Of course, considering we haven't had anybody make a donation in at least 2 years (except for me, of course - just to see if the donation program was really working - and it is), it really begs the question, doesn't it? So, the designation is really - uhh, meaningless. But, take a look at the site. Few ads. Almost all free stuff (less than three percent of our information is fee-based). Even the stuff we charge for could be interpolated and cobbled together. So, yes, its for profit.

We just have not the slightest idea about how to make money, are not self-promoters, and sadly, people don't seem to have any desire to contribute. So, ElderHope comes out of our pockets each month. For full disclosure purposes, we do get a few dollars from Google and Amazon (when you buy a book from our links). We also have our little store - but no one purchases that stuff either. So, there you have it: technically for-profit, in actuality really no profit.
