Readers have made an remarkable response to our final appeal, to meet our final goal of $35,000 for more original and to beat our new donor target of 1750 contributors. Since our last update, only three hours ago, we went from being 51 shy of meeting our donor target to closing more than half the gap, and needing a mere 23 donors more.
We have a bit more than five hours left. Our 2017 fundraiser closes at midnight Pacific time Will you help push us over the top? Please go to our Tip Jar now! Whatever you can give, $5, $50, or $5,000 all helps get us to these final goals and give you more original reporting!
And we are very close on our money goals too.. Three hour ago, we were $7,090 short of our $35,000 goal but now are only $5.360 below!
And more readers are chiming in.
From Mary H:
I wish I could send you much more, but it’s been a rough year. Thank you so much for all that you and everyone involved in NC do to make it the best blog on the internet. NC is part of my continuing lifelong education and I read it faithfully every day. Keep making waves and stirring up trouble.
$100. Small-ish I know, but adds to prior contributions. So, in total, to me NC is worth more than the NYTimes for accurate, timely, and in-depth reporting of finance and international politics. If it’s reported in the NYTimes today I can be sure it was reported first and best at NC several weeks or months ago.
Only a few hours remain in the Naked Capitalism fundraiser. Show your support of critical thinking, merciless evisceration of lame punditry, deep diving into turbid financial waters, and cute animal pictures.
Every dollar you give now goes to support more original reporting. And even though we’re delighted to have raised $42,000, consider how modest that is compared to newsroom budgets, let alone that of the think tanks whose output we regularly take down. Make a high-leverage investment in exposing the fabrications that help support looting and policies that serve the rich at expense of the rest of us.
Be one of the last to push our fundraiser over the top. Let’s see if we can get to 1750 donors and provide even more funding for original reporting before the close of this effort, midnight PDT. Every donation helps get us towards our goals and make this site even better.
There are multiple ways to give. The first is the fundraiser page, where you can use a debit card, a credit 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 email@example.com 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.
Again, I’m overwhelmed by this response from readers. Lambert and I want to give a big thanks to all of you who have donated already. If you can give a little, $5, $10, $50 or $5,000, it all has an impact. You are investing in creating a different debate, a different vision, and a different, more just society.
