Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,
I’ve got some good news to share with you!
Mike Gogulski of nostate.com has joined the Center as our volunteer technical guru. Mike has already taken great positive steps in strengthening our internet presence — including software updates, setting up Google Apps as a “virtual office” for the Center and adding useful web links to our Facebook and Twitter presences. Please join me in welcoming and congratulating Mike!
And now, news on our fundraising…
We asked for your help and, so far, you’ve been coming through for us! As I write this, the C4SS Spring Fundraiser has raised $840 out of our goal of $1300. That means we’ve already got funding for Research Associate Kevin Carson’s next quarterly research study and Carson will also soon be able to return to writing weekly commentaries. That means all of Carson’s work is already, right now, completely funded through the end of June 2009 — and it’s all due to you and your generous support!
We want to do more, though. We want to be able to pay a second staffer, a News Analyst, to write quality market anarchist op-eds twice a week. The funding needs for this are already part of our $1300 goal, and we’re already more than halfway to that goal. While only $$460 dollars remains to be raised before reaching our goal, now is no time to relax. If you’re not growing, you’re dying. Since we’re starting from basically nothing, we must grow and expand as aggressively as realistically possible — particularly in these desperate times that cry out for our ideas. Adding a second paid writer is an achievable and realistic step. Furthermore, most of the people reading this letter have not given already. Please donate today!
By the way, did I mention that those of you with web sites can add our ChipIn widget to your own web site to help raise money? Just click on the button marked “copy” on the fundraising widget to get code you can copy and paste into almost any web page.
I’ve given you some good news and a challenge to support us further. I’ll have another update soon in coming weeks detailing progress on our fundraiser and other good news.
Thank you for your support!
Director, Center for a Stateless Society
