Did you know? Marlborough Online receives no funding to operate; all operating costs are paid for as a labour of love by one person. If everyone in Marlborough gave just $1 per year, it would fund significant content development and quality improvement. $2 would be enough to employ a second person part-time, and $3 would allow for two people to work full-time.
