Donating to EVE University
EVE University runs primarily on donations from its members and alumni, along with well-wishers and supporters of our cause. Without these people and their donations, we would not be able to provide the new pilots the resources that we currently offer.
EVE University also accepts donations via PayPal, and is a member of affiliate programs for both Game Time Cards and new accounts, the payments of which are used solely to offset the cost of the EVE University server, which hosts these forums, the UniWiki, our Mumble server and various other resources. For more information, see this link.
Making an In-Game Donation
For any monetary donations, please simply locate EVE University in-game via your People and Places window, then select 'Give Money' from the right click menu. If prompted, select the 'Master Wallet' as the account, enter your amount and reason, then click OK. Please ensure that you have the correct corporation (show info if necessary) as there are a number of lookalikes and similar sounding corporations.
EVE University Benefactors List
As of July 11th 2010, EVE University maintains an automated list of benefactors who have donated ISK to the University. As all donations are welcome, the value of any donations is not listed, and all donations are private by default.
- To make your donation public, include the word PUBLIC in all caps in the 'reason' field.
- To make your donation private, and remove yourself from the list, include the word PRIVATE in all caps in the 'reason' field.
The list is updated periodically based on API data, so please allow at least 12 hours for any changes to take place.
Modules, Ships, Charges and other items
Donations from E-UNI members
Please remember to repair and repackage all of the items that you wish to donate if at all possible. If you are donating something which cannot be repackaged (such as a rigged ship) then please name it after yourself so we know where it came from.
If you have Alpha access or above, you should place any modules, charges or similar into the 'E-UNI Donations' container in the Alpha Hangar at HQ. If the items are too large or you do not have access, please drop them directly into the 'Restricted' Hangar, preferably within a container named after you so we know where they came from. Note that you will not have access to view the items inside the hangar, but you can still drop donations into it.
IMPORTANT: Please do not place donated items directly onto the stacks or into the hangars or other containers! Use only the 'E-UNI Donations' container or Restricted Hangar for donations. It may seem like you are saving the Hangar Section some time and hassle, but it actually creates more work for them to take your excess items back out!
Donations from Third Parties
Item donations can be contracted directly to a director in-game, and they will be accepted on behalf of the corporation. The best location for any deliveries such as these is usually our headquarters in Aldrat IX - Pator Tech School, however donations can be accepted anywhere in hisec space, and our logistics department can relocate them as needed.
Sponsorship and Others
From time to time we are approached by parties offering donations or sponsorship in other forms. If you would like to discuss an arrangement outside the above, please speak to our Director of Public Relations.
