I've read the sites bit about ads and have noticed the "Bells, Missed Bells" things on the side task bar. Have you considered signing the site up to use the Basic Attention Tokens that the Brave Browser offers?
https://publishers.basicattentiontoken.org/
It's a crypto currency distribution that works off of ads pushed to the browser itself which can be cashed out by users as tips to the websites they visit.
I've got $10 in BAT I could submit right now, but ACC isn't signed up for the program for me to donate.

I'm not likely to get a different browser that displays ads, but this could be an alternative revenue stream if the site owner sets it up for their domain. You could then recommend people browse the site in Brave as a method of supporting the website.

Thanks for your suggestion! From looking at the documentation it seems like there are a lot of legal and technical hoops that the site owner (@jader201) would need to jump through, so I'm not sure how worthwhile he will see it being if it would only be used by a few people, but I'll pass it on.

Note that it doesn't seem to be possible for websites benefiting from Brave Rewards to identify the users who tipped them, so if jader201 chooses to set up this system for ACC, you will not receive any sort of compensation (Bells, account perks, etc.) for using it.

I'm honestly fine with not receiving any rewards for donations. I just wanted to pass this along because I'm sure there are a good number of users who use ad blocking software and browsers but would be willing to contribute to the website if an opportunity was available like that.

I have no idea what it is like from a websites end that has it setup, but from the user end the bat system is not very technical. I just know the typical end user is looking for the path of least resistance and it might be something to consider.

Hi there - just to keep you informed, Jader got back to me a few days ago with this:
"I personally don't have any interest in pursuing that, and can't imagine we'd have enough interest in that for it to be worth the hassle. Once we get to Reddit size, then we can consider it. "
Sorry it didn't work out. If you'd like to financially support ACC without enabling ads, for now the only option is to donate directly.
