Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,
Time is running out! Just barely over 24 hours remain in the C4SS fundraising drive for the fourth quarter of 2009. We’ve raised $3,340 so far. That’s 82% of our goal of $4,025 — only $685 short. Please donate online NOW using the ChipIn widget on any page of our web site at:
Your generous support has already funded for the fourth quarter of 2009:
- the work of C4SS Research Analyst Kevin Carson — 2 op-ed length commentaries per week and two longer research studies;
- the work of C4SS News Analyst Thomas L. Knapp — 2 op-ed length commentaries per week;
- the work of C4SS News Analyst Alex R. Knight III — 1 weekly op-ed length commentary and one monthly magazine-article length feature article;
- professional web administration and support from Mike Gogulski;
Besides maintaining our current level of operations, we’re already funded for more new content just by shifting Kevin Carson’s quarterly workload from three studies and one weekly commentary to two studies and two weekly commentaries — for the same cost. No matter what, you’re already going to be seeing Carson’s writing nearly twice as frequently.
Besides that, we’re already going to be getting our less visible but absolutely crucial web administration and related technical jobs bumped up to the next level.
That’s all DONE, already — thanks to YOU.
But that remaining $685 that we’re still short of our goal is absolutely essential. In radical politics, just like all politics, perceptions matter. We want to expand our operations consistently EVERY quarter — because that paves the way for more expansion the next quarter after that. Only YOU can create the sense of excitement, of greater and greater things to come — until we’ve built an unstoppable and fearsome media juggernaut.
It just takes doing things one step at a time. The step for this quarter is adding three weekly short audio commentaries and an additional weekly op-ed length written commentary. That’s what that remaining $685 is for, as can be seen from the listing of proposed expenses that went into picking that $4,025 goal (which I showed you in the supporter update letter that launched this drive).
We can do this. YOU can do this. Out of the hundreds this message will be reaching, only 45 have donated so far. If the current average of about $87 per donation holds true, we only need about 10 or so more donors.
