Dear Friends and Readers, we kindly ask you for your support.
Raised funds are to cover a whole year of the TIFAM operation. These will be spent on new equipment, including a better computer as for now we work on an old Dell Optiplex 3020 insufficient to create complex graphic templates. We also planning to buy two cameras for the reporters. The rest of the budget will cover the fixed costs and will be used to pay for the reporters' travel, which is very expensive these days.
So far we work on a voluntary basis and pay for everything ourselves. An annual budget will allow us to concentrate on our work and the development of the magazine whilst pursuing new sources of funding through advertising and sponsored articles, organizing venues and archery fairs.
For patrons who would like to support us with significant donations, we have a thank you advertising deal.
We ask our friends and supporters to spread the word. If you want to help or appreciate a promotion you got through TIFAM so far, please pass our details along.
TIFAM is more than a publication. It is a life project, a vision that took shape within just 5 months. It is a dream of archery enthusiasts, for whom the culture of written word is as important as the golden ring for the athlete.
We promote young archers by writing about them and highlighting their sporting achievements. We support clubs and their day-to-day ground-up work. We build bridges between associations by highlighting common goals and emphasizing all that unites while challenging all that creates division. We work with all archery associations and societies on the island of Ireland. Our magazine has a global reach with a steady readership in both hemispheres. We have created something unique, which has arisen only from an idea, but also from a need of the untamed spirit of writers.
We write about the world of our dreams, finding role models in everyday life. Each of our stories, any coverage grew out of this powerful dream of a great sport of archery. Whether we are dealing with a champion or a child just starting out in the sport, in each of them we sense this very spark of uniqueness that ignites the imagination of the writer, guiding their hand towards the open minds of readers.
We have devoted our time, resources and knowledge to the archery community, to our friends and colleagues too inspire, guide, teach and MAKE ARCHERY BETTER!
TIFAM Editorial Team would like to thank you for taking the time to read about us and our plans for the future. We're striving to build something unique that is not yet found in Ireland, your commitment and time is like water and air for us - Thank you heartily for all your support.
