Our goal: $100,000

Since August 12th 2015 we have raised $29,679.20

Fundraising Campaign 2015

Nikonians is a not-for-profit community celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year. Any revenue generated through our operations is reinvested to sustain our growth. As a community, we are relying on the commitment of our members, with membership fees representing over 70% of the total revenue. The rest comes from donations and limited advertising.

Several tens of thousands of users register as members at Nikonians per year. However, only ca 5% of all members are supporting the community financially through a contributing Silver, Gold or Platinum membership.

Based upon last years successful fundraising campaign, we expect this year to:

Expand our commitment further

In the last twelve months, we have worked hard on improving the user experience for all users, but there is still a lot to be done: We need to further improve integration of our various areas, such as galleries and forums and we need to deliver more in-depth articles and content. We also want to organize more events and local gatherings, something that is still not on the level where it should be.


Your support will allow us to pursue our work and continue our mission to share, learn and inspire.

For more information about Nikonians community, its vision and values, please go to About Nikonians. For detailed information about operating Nikonians as a not-for-profit site, read our Wiki: Are you doing all this for a profit? and What was done with the fundraising money in 2014?

Big thanks to the supporters listed below, who assist Nikonians in helping other photographers to learn and grow further. Thank you for your help!
Bo (bgs) & Ramón (jrp), Founders of Nikonians
