Final Hours of Fundraiser, Beat New Donor Goal

The Naked Capitalism community has spoken loudly and clearly. You’ve said you want this site to continue to improve. You’ve been willing to provide tangible backing for your desire to have us demystify finance, call out chicanery in high places, parse propaganda, to become more effective in our activism, and in our small way, help promote the creation of a more just society.

We set an initial target of 1000 donors for our fundraiser. You met that last week. We set a new target of 1250. You blew past that today. We are now at 1293 donors. This is nearly double what we got all day yesterday, and we’re only halfway thorough this donation day, which ends at midnight PST.

But even with this great support, we are still short by $3,475 of our final goal of $25,000 for more original reporting. Let’s see if we can get to 1350 donors and hit our last monetary target before the close of this effort.

Join us and participate via our fundraiser page, where you can give by credit or debit card of via a PayPal account (the charge will be in the name of Aurora Advisors).

You can also send a check (or multiple post dated checks) in the name of Aurora Advisors Incorporated to

Aurora Advisors Incorporated
903 Park Avenue, 8th Floor
New York, NY 10075

Please also send an e-mail to with the headline “Check is in the mail” (and just the $ en route in the message) to have your contribution included in our running tally.

We’ve gotten SO many messages that it will take me some time to dig through them. I wanted to share a few: From Phil B:

Many thanks to you and everyone at NC. It’s an essential, daily source of information for you and I only wish there were more of you in more places!

And Scott Z:

Thanks for your great work. Naked Capitalism truly is a positive community for change.

The knowledge and understanding I gain by following your reporting allows me to better defend the government policies and values I hold dear. In our time, it’s very thankless work and being able to find common ground with others provides a form of strength that is difficult to put a value on.

I recommend your site whenever I can. I hope that helps your efforts too.

And Pat:

Thanks so much for the accurate financial information across a broad range of topics. You treat your readers as competent adults. How refreshing. The reports on Greece’s financial defeat were painful to read. Yet clear-eyed assessment is always better than wishful thinking. Thanks for reporting the PE swindles of pensions and pensioners. Thanks for reporting on the foolish wishful thinking of the limited partners.

NC is the best site on the web. I’m happy to support more original reporting.

So, last chance. Be one of the 60 or so we need to push this effort over the top.

If you can give a little, give a little. If you can give more, give more. If you can give a lot, give a lot. You are investing in being part of the solution. And thanks again for your support!

    I think you’re doing even better work this year than last! I will probably do a monthly subscription before the end of the year, but, I wanted to make sure I contributed during this year’s Fundraiser.

    Keep up the great work!
