C4SS Needs Your Help!

Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,

I’ll keep it short.

I’m writing this on the afternoon of July 13th. There are less than 48 hours left before the planned end of our fundraising drive to cover expenses for the past month. Very simply, we’re nowhere near meeting our goal. This jeopardizes our ability to continue operating.

That doesn’t mean it’s time to panic. Our fundraising goal is so small that there’s no reason we can’t meet it, even at this late stage. We need just a little over $1,000. This message is going out to nearly 900 supporters on Facebook alone. If 1 out of every 10 people reading this message chips in $10, we’re basically there.

Brad Spangler,
Director, Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS)

C4SS Monthly Fundraiser

Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,

It’s time for me to again report to you on our financial situation and ask you to please help us pay some bills. Our fundraising goal this month is $1,320. Please support our work. Donate using the ChipIn widget on any page of our web site. Financial details follow…

We have had $1820 in total expenses for this past month of June. Those expenses are partially offset by $300 in income from recurring donations. Additionally, we’ve received several hundred dollars in online course fees for the Stateless-U program of online courses. Because those course fees are not a monthly source of income, though, as well as because enrollees can potentially drop classes and ask for their money back during the remainder of the month of July, we’re only counting a portion of that money toward the June expenses; $200.

That, then, is how we arrived at our fundraising goal for this month:

***********

$1,820 EXPENSES

-$300 DONATION INCOME

-$200 COURSE FEES INCOME
_______

$1,320 FUNDRAISING GOAL

***********

The monthly expense breakdown is pretty similar to what you’ve seen in recent months. Tom Knapp is now our part-time Media Coordinator, so his pay has changed. Although you’ll continue to see the occasional written commentary from him, Tom is now mostly doing promotional work aimed at media placement of our content. Darian Worden is now making more money as well because he’s taking up some of the writing slack from Tom writing less. Additionally, I’m drawing a $100 monthly stipend now and had $20 in phone expenses this past month. Here’s the expense listing:

***********

Research Associate: Carson — $425
News Analyst: Knight — $160
News Analyst: Worden — $260
Web Administrator: Gogulski — $215
Media Coordinator: Knapp — $640
Director (Stipend & Expenses): Spangler — $120
_____

TOTAL EXPENSES: $1820

***********

That’s where we’re at right now.
