The Naked Capitalism community has spoken loudly and clearly. You’ve said you want this site to have more in-depth coverage and more impact. You’ve provided 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 1100 donors for our fundraiser. You met that last week. We set a new target of 1250. You broke that over the weekend. This morning, you were just shy of our old target of 1350 donors. We asked if you could beat our total of last year, of 1457 donors.
We’re now 1506, the highest we’ve ever gotten, and this fundraiser still has nearly a half day to go, since you have till midnight PST.
And we even beat our target of $35,000 for original reporting! We are now $655 over it!
So let’s try one more stretch goal. Every donation now helps fund more original reporting. Can we get to 1550 donors and $42,000 in original reporting? Ever little bit will help, whether it’s $5 or $27, or $50, or $5,000.

We’ve gotten SO many messages that it will take me some time to read through them all and reply properly. I wanted to share a few:
You are the best read every morning. Thank you.
Pleeease keep up the excellent work! More and more vital every day.
Wish I could send more! Naked Capitalism has played such a crucial role in how I understand the world, and is a beloved part of my daily routine no matter how wretched the news… Thank you so much for all the work you do, and please make sure you & Lambert take all the rest and diversion you need to make this a sustainable endeavor, because its truly terrifying thinking about the next four years without Naked Capitalism.
So, last chance. Be one of the 50 or so we need to push this effort over the top.
