Readers have responded generously to our last appeal, to meet our final fundraiser goal of $35,000 for more original and to surpass our new donor target of 1250 contributors. Our community gave more donations in the past 6 hours than in the previous 12, at 62. That blasted through our old goal and puts us at 1273 donors! We’re raising that target to 1350.
Since our last update, only four hours ago, you’ve blasted through our financial target target. We are now at $24,255, closing in on our goal of $36,000 for original reporting! This uptick in the closing hours is gratifying, since it confirms how much the Naked Capitalism community values this work and wants this site to get even better.
Remember ever dollar now goes for original reporting!
Will you be one of the ones to put us over the top by going to our Tip Jar?
We have eight hours left. Our 2022 fundraiser closes at midnight Pacific time. Can you help us keep punching above our weight? Whatever you can give, $5, $50, or $5,000 all helps get us to these final goals and give you more original reporting!
Readers are chiming in.
And thank you for all the great work you do making NC the best web site on the Internet. I can second every single comment you have posted from commenters who love NC.
I have never found another site that has such great posts like Links, Water Cooler, original posts, guest posts, and the best commentariat in the business.
I would be ignorant of just about everything going on in the world today if it weren’t for Yves, Lambert, the other posters and contributors (current & past), moderators, members of the various brain trusts and the commentariat (current & past) of Naked Capitalism. Even worse, if I were dependent on the MSM, I might think of myself as an informed person, when, in fact I would only have been mis- and dis-informed. That said, even my infrequent (and decreasing) ventures into “news” coverage reveal that is has become crazily incomprehensible, if not irrelevant, on almost any subject. (And this is an election year. Ain’t that just great?)
The discussion here has been the go-to for all matters relating to COVID, not only because there are sensible people with decades of practical experience in medicine speaking their minds (e.g., IM Doc), researchers who understand the nuts and bolts, but a community of level-headed people willing to submit official discourse to criticism and BS testing.
Again, kudos to all at NC for providing clarity on this, and many other matters!
Only a few hours remain in the Naked Capitalism fundraiser. Support 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 nearly $25,000, 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 unpacking the propaganda and exposing the distortions 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 1350 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
164 Peachtree Circle
Mountain Brook, AL 35213
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 deeply gratified 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.
