 ==== How do you spend money? ==== ==== How do you spend money? ====
 +We spend it first on things that are essential, like the website hosting, banking fees, but also advertisements and very small Apéros for our events open to all members and external invitees. As mentioned above, this helps to keep the community alive and growing, which is to the benefit of everyone involved.
  
 +Furthermore, we invest it in things that make it easyer for *everyone* to advance on their projects, be it prototyping boards, another 3D printer if needed, or other common components and materials. We do this only if we believe that it is cheaper to share the costs instead of having every individual project/member pay for it themselves.
