Van's Hardware Journal is a donor driven web site.  We want to avoid the complications that arise when standard advertising interests become involved.  We create our content because we have an earnest, honest desire to inform and, coming from our extensive experience in this industry, we know how precious unfettered information is becoming.

If you feel that our content is worth something to you, then please donate whatever you think is appropriate.

If you have no money, that is fine.  We want to keep these pages open to everyone.

You can also contribute to VHJ by shopping through one of the vendors on our shopping page.  We earn commissions on any sales made through these links.  We will be expanding the list of vendors a little in the days to come, but we will keep these links confined to the shopping page.

You can make donations through:
