The following constitute the operating policies of the Naples Free-Net,
a non-profit corporation formed according to law in the State Florida.
How to sponsor the Naples Free-Net?
The Naples Free-Net is based solely on partnerships between business and not-for-profits. Therefore it depends primarily on individual and commercial donations of both money and services to fund startup and continuing operations as well as to maintain its fiscal self-sufficiency.
All donations are welcome.Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law. Access to the Free-Net, however, is not contingent upon donations.
There are several classes of donors and recognition and certain NFN services are available to donors at each level. Please note that Naples Free-Net services cannot be guaranteed at all times, however, due to external factors and volume of usage. Donors may decline recognition or services.
This refers to donors who contribute a minimum of $6,000 a year.In recognition of such a level of support, a Sponsor may connect to the NFNs server as a Remote Information Provider (RIP), if desired.Also, the Free-Nets Donor Screen has space for Sponsor listing, if eligible Sponsors desire listing.
Sponsors who are Remote Information Providers (RIPs), that is those having their own servers who wishto connect to the Free-Nets server, at their request, will be provided with pointers or hot links to their server from their Home Page.
NFN will register a domain name of choice for Sponsors.All Sponsors requesting domain name registration will be classified as Remote Information Providers whether or not they provide information to the community.
Non-commercial RIPs are not charged for hot links.

NFNs mission is the creation of a community electronic bulletin board with concomitant e-mail capability for two-way communications for all users.
