The Naked Capitalism community has spoken!. You’ve said you want this site to have more in-depth coverage and 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 gaol of 1350. You broke that last weekebd. We set a new target of 1600, which you beat mid this week. We then raised our target to 1750, and we are just a few donations short of beating it! We are at 1731 donations. Can you be one of the donors to push us over the top?
We are now at 1717. Help us make this the best fundraiser ever by giving in the home stretch at our Tip Jar!
And we are at $34,215, a hair’s breadth away from our target of $35,000 for original reporting!
Can you push us over the top? 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:
From Stuart H:
My first time contributing, meant to do it last week but here we are!
Thanks for all that you do. NC has changed the way I look at the news media and the world itself.
Wow – this time of year again. When the leaves start turning, its time to contribute… This site is priceless, I’ll be sending my contribution, I just wish I could afford more.
If there was an award for impact relative to resources, this site would surely be absolute winner of the internet.
And Robert W:
We greatly appreciate awakening each day to so much pertinent, succinct & astute truth, prescient commentary and good, old fashioned journalism. Despite the best efforts of Google to SEO dissent down their memory hole; corporate media & K Street to “correct the record” and our tag team kleptocracy to besmirch truth seekers.
So, last chance. Be one of the final 50 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!
Threw in a bit extra over my monthly support to get those numbers up.
Just been dragging my dogs. Will send a check.
Love all you do, infowise. Even when it makes me sad.
First time donor, keep up the great work Yves & co.
Thank you all!
Sorry I’ve not been able to donate this time around. Feel a bit guilty about considering NC is an almost daily fix for me. For the next month or so I’m living off the cash in my wallet though… Hopefully the fall goes better and I can toss a donation your way. Really love all you do to bring us insightful news and thoughtful analysis. Thank you.
Hey Geo, been there. Your comment has contributed $100 to the NC cause, for real.
I sent $50 last week.
I had heard of Naked Capitalism before that Prop or Not article came out in the WaPo, but never checked it out.
It was that nonsense, along with the general feeling of dread created by the 2016 election (and especially the Democratic Primary) that got me to become a regular reader… silver linings!
Keep up the good work!
