IMHO, advertising and fot48 would not be a good mix as it would change the character of the site (and the event by linkage). My recommendation is to add a “Donations” link on the home page. Traffic has probably already peaked for this year, so add this ASAP while people are still checking in on the 2004 event. Deposit the donations in an escrow account. I think you’ll find that this years costs will be covered in short order, as well as a good portion of next years costs.
