What kind of cost are you looking at? I know (having paid for hosting myself before) that MC hosting is not cheap, but it scales heavily on the kind of player count you want.

Looking at an unmanaged dedicated linux rig somewhere.
I'll do all the administration / installation / upkeep.
That keeps the cost down and also allows us to swap out games / expand / do-whatever-we-feel-like.

I don't really want to post the exact figure because.
a) it may change
b) people are less likely to give if they think it has been made
c) anything spare would go into a reserve fund to pay for it if someone else drops out etc.

What I will promise is that everything donated towards game server costs will be spent on game server costs.

To each their own I guess. I am personally less inclined to donate to things unless I know the costs.

Well...

If you look at clubs and game server in general how many will give a price.
By that I mean an actual honest price. :P
My point is where you see normal html based website that need 40 - 50+ a month...that's crazy - and often wrong (in terms of operating cost).

A gaming server running one game will cost about £30 - 50, depending on bandwidth specs etc required.
Add about an extra 2/3rd (approx) the price for every additional game you want to run.
That gives you an idea.

Find a gaming host (such as IGN-gaming) and look under the dedicated server section.

Well, I can't say I'd be that active but I see myself as a bit of a redstone wizard and your train station intrigues me......
But hell, sign me up
