EDIT : I have been informed by various people about the possibilities of Czech minecraft hosting websites, therefore the price will be drastically lower. As such, we will have more money leftover to donate to charity and/or to the faculty itself!!
Also, I would like to mention that all backers of this project will receive rewards connected to the server, we might do a 'hall of fame' of sorts. This is all very new still. :)
I'm a first year student at the faculty of Education of the Masaryk university. One of my biggest wishes going in was to be part of the community, help other people and participate in the goings-on. Unfortunately, this semester is a strange place for all of us and we don't get to socialize as much. This gave me an idea, we could meet in an online space. As I'm sure many of us play video games, it hit me we could start a faculty Minecraft server, a place for students to meet, make friends, cooperate and create together.
I plan to be 100% transparent with everything that happens to the money raised. The official price of the server is 222.52 USD per year, but this website only allows campaigns of 251 USD and more. The remainder of the money would be used to pay someone to administrate the server, or, if we find someone willing to do so for free, would be donated to a charity selected through a poll. The selected server would have 2GB ram and hold 35 slots, meaning 35 people could be online at a time (more people would be able to join, just not be online at the same time). The server price is set including a Shield and lasts for 12 months. All info about the prices and the website I am planning to host with is at https://mcprohosting.com/.
There are other options, in case this gets more attention from people, we can order an increased capacity server. Please contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, comments, or would like to join our discord server (English Bachelors 2020-2023).

Let's all pitch in and create something great!
