Thanks! Hit Our Third Fundraiser Target Quickly, Onto the Fourth: Guest Bloggers

Thanks to the prompt responses of over 715 members of the Naked Capitalism community, we’ve met our first target, an increased budget for site improvements and IT support, and the second target, funding for meetups, travel and related site coverage, and our third, funding comments section support, at a rapid clip.

You donations are a statement that you value this community and want a better debate and a better society and are willing to invest to have us do more to make Naked Capitalism be an even more effective voice for you. If you haven’t had time to give yet, please visit our Tip Jar to support our efforts. Whatever you can give, whether $10 or $1000, helps us provide you with your daily diet of incisive commentary, analysis, news, cute animal pictures and soothing plantidotes, as well as a place to hang out with the like-minded.

We are already $1,930 towards our goal of $19,000 for our guest bloggers.

As regular readers may know, over the years, we’ve been improving the caliber of writers who contribute to this site. We like to send writers who’ve contributed regularly like Lambert and Jerri-Lynn Scofield, an honorarium out of the fundraiser. Even though we pay our contributors for helping fill this site’s regular schedule at a good level, writing isn’t a very well remunerated line of work. Our guest bloggers regularly turn out in-depth analysis quick, but the fact that they can do so is a result of their considerable experience and expertise. So we hope you’ll acknowledge their skills and dedication by chipping in at the Tip Jar.

This year, because some of our past regulars have had other commitments this year, the load has fallen on fewer people than before. This year, Lambert has done a backbreaking amount of work, between his considerable help in managing our ever-growing and some times overly contentious comments section, tech and admin, and bailing me out way too often. So I hope you’ll continue to be generous, since there is absolutely no way I could have kept the site going without their considerable help. Jerri-Lynn has added new beats on sustainability, both the right to repair and combatting the pervasive use of plastics.

Please give them a really generous “thank you” for all their diligent and valuable efforts!

There are multiple ways to give. The first is here on the blog, the Tip Jar, which takes you to PayPal. There 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, if you want to spread out payments) 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 yves@nakedcapitalism.com with the headline “Check is in the mail” (and just the $ en route in the message) so we can count your contribution in the total number of donations.

    Just donated from Canada as well…Your web site is one I read every day and your articles and commentary are breath of fresh air in the never ending miasma of corporate driven news and talking heads. My thanks to Yves, Lambert and the rest. I find it hard to keep up at times but I’m doing my best. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you from an appreciative reader who has been learning from Naked Capitalism every day since November 2016, courtesy of the Washington Post and PropOrNot.

      Permit me to don a big, face-splitting grin as I type this: I don’t think this is the outcome that the Post and PropOrNot had in mind.

      Be that as it may, we’re glad you’re here, Fred.

    I am really pleased to donate to Naked Capitalism (and donating through Paypal was so easy and no need to create a Paypal account either!).

    Naked Capitalism is my absolute go-to daily read and the only website that I whole heartedly and repeatedly recommend to friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances and activists!
