Dear Classreport Users: We are one of the premier social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family-owned and operated business with less than 15 staff, yet we freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users (See Bravos). We are funded solely through voluntary contributions. Despite our small size, we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So we are asking for your support. If everyone reading this gives $15, our fundraiser will be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you for your support. Click here to help out now.
