The Kerstner Foundation (Kerstner.org) offers FREE Web Hosting to nonprofits. To qualify you must install and activate this plugin.
No, not at all! The reason the footer is required is our partner company providing the free hosting writes off the very large expenses associated with hosting 1000’s of sites for free. The write off is large enough that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) frequently audits them requiring proof of all sites they host. The footer acts as this proof if the IRS is inclined to look into things.
No, but you will be ineligible to receive free hosting going forward. You will be notified of this and have 1 week to enable the plugin – If you do not enable it within this grace period your hosting will be disabled.

The actual text varies from time to time but here is a sample:
"Free web hosting for nonprofits by Kerstner.org".
