On some other forums, people who donate have the word "Contributor" under their names in every post. Maybe you might consider doing something like that?

There’s no such thing as free, but it pays to shop around.

I have priced pro boards. What is free for something small, is not free for something large. The cost of proboards is greater than the current costs and we would loose many of the features. Little things like CDN to have images hosted around the world for fast loading pages.

I annually check out alternatives and have kept the costs as low as possible.

Jeff, just made a donation. Absolutely not fair that your paying out of your own pocket to keep the site up and running. I might suggest a forum post be created under a different heading to get more awareness and donations...
