Procrastinators of the World, Unite! Last Day, Last Chance for Our Fundraiser!

Thanks to the magnanimous donations of many loyal readers, we’re within striking distance of our targets. We’re at 1325 donors, just 25 short of our 1350 donor target. We’re only $9,830 away from our last target of $35,000 or more original reporting. Last year, we got 1457 donors, and we are closer to that number this year than we were at the start of our final day last year. Will you help make this fundraiser an even bigger success?

Give now, and give generously through our fundraiser page, and help us make this fundraiser a rousing success! Remember, if you help us beat our goals, that means we can do even more on your behalf.

We’ve deeply appreciated not only the many donations we’ve gotten, but also the kind, and sometimes humbling notes from readers. From Saurabh:

Thank you, for your (public) service. You guys have contributed immeasurably to broadening my world view. is the very first site I refer friends to for an independent, non-biased commentary of first world events.

And MB:

Thanks for exposing so much of the rot in the bodies politic, financial and economic. Since I’m doing a Masters in Econ at a heterodox uni (Roosevelt in Chicago), I am always heartened to see the non-mainstream voices so well represented on NC…

Look forward to reading from and contributing to NC for many, many years to come!

From John H:

I just sent a check for $100 that I wish could be a lot more. Thank you and everyone at Naked Capitalism for your contributions to the continuing education of a 73-year-old. I’ve written a few times, mostly in reference to the antidotes, which I share with my animal-loving goddaughter, who turned 7 in August. I periodically send out a little list of links and comments to friends, and often sing praises to Naked Capitalism as the source of the story…

Thank you again. As I keep saying to the friends to whom I send links, facts are important.

My best wishes for the next ten years at Naked Capitalism.

And from Bruce E:

This is, without doubt, the last resource left from the outrage responding to the looting of the treasury a decade ago. It is a university without borders and merits the highest praise for practicing not only the spirit of American democracy in action, but a continuous open learning system with substance and integrity. Bravo!

I can’t really pay all my bills, but my contribution is in the mail and I made it as painful to my budgeted austerity as I possibly could do. Thank you; thank you….

It is not an exaggeration to say you are the last of a great surge of intelligent and interactive blogs that have open participation and shared insights among participants in threads that are generally stacked with references and contributing thoughts as well as dialogue of authentic merit….You are the real thing, and I am very grateful for all you have presented to our public country (and republic) at large.

Today is the last chance for the 2016 fundraiser. You can give through our fundraiser page, where you can use a credit or debit card or 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 the total number of donations.

So give now to Naked Capitalism. Whatever you can give, whether $5 or $50 or $5,000, it helps us all keep this community thriving. This isn’t just giving, it’s a statement that you are want a different debate, a different society, and a different culture. It’s time to join us as we make sure this site can do an even better job of debunking the lies that prop up a diseased power structure and promoting a more just social order.

    Please can someone tell me the ‘correct’ format for phone and postcode (UK) for the NC paypal engine? I have tried everything i can think of to no avail.

        Hi jabawocky, first off, thanks for the donation (or the so-far attempts at it anyway!)

        The U.K. post code masks should be accepted (e.g. AANN AANN, ANN NAA and so on) but PayPal (sigh, PayPal…) are terrible at updating this with Post Office quarterly data files, sometimes they seem to go for years without processing a new version to pick up changes. If you can’t get your “real” post code to work, try the code without any space between the first block and the second block,e.g. “SP12 3TK” becomes “SP123TK”. And finally you can always try a dopey US Zip Code (e.g. “90210”).

        For the phone number, it might not be a mandatory field so try leaving it blank. If you have to put something in, try using the international format so (01356) 365119 becomes 00441356365119.

        If you’re still having bother, having tried these, just post a follow-on message saying “I’m still stuck up the creek without a paddle” or equivalent — I’ll check your email address from WordPress backstage and if you like (remember to use an email address you look at!) I can contact you to ask how much you were going to donate and make the donation for you. If you get guilt pangs, I’ll give you a contact address and you can send me a cheque or something.

    i’ll put a check in the mail today. before i go to my procrastinator’s anonymous meeting.

  4. funemployed

    Selfishly bought econned instead of donating. Hope it helps a little anyhow. You can additionally consider this an informal pledge for 50$ whenever I am next fully employed.

  5. Deloss Brown

    Yves, you are notably reticent about whether a deduction to NC is tax-deductible. If I contribute, am I running up the national debt or not, SVP?

  6. Lambert Strether

    I just want to underline again that this part of the fundraiser is for original reporting, which is our reason for existence. Much as we all love the cute animals and Links, CalPERS does not fear Naked Capitalism for those reasons. CalPERS fears NC because NC can not only get the story, it can explain it. The PayPal button is to your right!
