The Naked Capitalism community has spoken! Your generous donations say you want more in-depth reporting, fast and insightful analysis of important events, and impact. You’ve provided tangible backing for your desire to have us demystify complex technical topics, call out corruption, shred propaganda, become more effective in our activism, provide a place for sanity checks, blowing off steam, and camaraderie, and in our small way, help promote the establishment of a more just society.
We set an initial target of 1100 donors for our fundraiser. We set a new goal of 1350. Since midnight last night, we’ve gotten an additional 58 backers! We are now at 1209 donors.
Help us beat our vital fundraiser goals by giving in the home stretch at our Tip Jar!
And we are at $20,120, closing in on 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 $50, or $5,000.
Join us and participate via our fundraiser page, where you can give by credit or debit card of via a PayPal account (the charge will be in the name of Aurora Advisors).
You can also send a check (we like checks!) in the name of Aurora Advisors Incorporated to

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. Some are humbling. From Another Anon:
The latest financial report for the “Villa of Reduced Circumstances” shows most regrettably that its name is still accurate. Fortunately, the situation is not so dire that the villa would have to relocate to an even more reduced abode, namely the back seat of a rather elderly automobile.
Thus the CEO (that is me), and the chief financial officer (that is also me), are in strong agreement of the need to make some sort of donation to Naked Capitalism. For the moment though, it is possible only to make a donation of $US 5.
Hopefully, the next financial report will show more green and less red, and so making possible a larger donation. We are cautiously optimistic that the chances of this happening, are greater than the probability of some non-inebriated person spotting aerial pigs.
I would like to stop for a second. The fact that Another Anon is giving despite being in tough financial circumstances says how important this community is to him. I hope some of you who are doing well now will dig deep in light of his generosity.
I can’t emphasize enough how valuable this site is, and try to spread the word. Thanks to our esteemed hosts and everyone who makes this place such a pleasure and refuge: a one-stop shop for analysis, commentary, and animal pix – tough combo to beat!
And The Rev Kev:
Naked Capitalism is my go to site for news and analysis, particularly analysis to get an idea of what is happening here and around the world. And we know that NC was all over the pandemic story right from the absolute beginning before cases started to crop up in other countries. Same with other developments which helps people get a heads up on what they should be doing. Without NC, the internet would be a bleaker scene indeed, especially when so many other voices have been silenced over the years. Great work, guys.
And from tennesseewaltzer:
Your posts on the Ukraine are incredibly informing. In line with all the other posts from your website. The breadth of your interests and knowledge is truly remarkable.
Thank you, thank you.
And Eric G:
Keep up the great work!
So, today is your last chance. Be one of the final 100 to make this effort a smashing success.
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!
In my fashion I managed to wait until the last minute but I didn’t procrastinate beyond the point of no return. Thanks much for all the effort that goes into the site.
We have a nearly gold frame all ready for that portrait of Madison…
I sent a donation by credit card.
For next time – can you deal with cheques drawn on Canadian banks in CDN?
Cheques are free for me so that would be a plus if possible.
I’ve read NC religiously for years, but the pandemic made me realize how uniquely valuable it is as a source of literally life-saving information: way ahead of the curve on the severity and aerosolized nature of COVID-19. In fact, I was just at my doctor’s today for a checkup and he had a notice posted in the waiting room about how to protect yourself from COVID. Under the “How is it transmitted?” heading, it only listed respiratory droplets and fomites. “Droplet goons!” I thought, as I double-checked the fit of my N95. I have both Aurora Advisors and Lambert Strether on autopay (and have for a long time), but I always try to chip in a bit extra when there’s a fund drive. Thank you for your consistent high-quality work, and keep it up!
Adding that, given current economic conditions, some of us who were living on the edge as it was might not be able to spare even $5 or $10 at this time, so if you’re reading this and are in a position to chip in even more than you already have, please would you do so as soon as possible? At least two readers made contributions on my behalf this morning, and I can’t tell you how much it meant to me. Thread starts here:
(Procrastinators of the World, Unite!)
Thanks to our Hosts and all the Commenters!
NC is indispensable to getting a glimpse of what really matters!
I hope you will still take my contribution next week…
