C4SS Needs Your Help

Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,

Will you please help us keep the Center going? During the current fundraiser, donations have not come in at a pace that can meet our goal by the end of March. That goal was set in order to get us in the financial position we need to be shooting for. We’re revising that goal downward, pushing January pay expenses forward to the next quarterly fundraiser and seeking to build less of a financial reserve.

I just got done paying C4SS staff for all remaining pay that was due for the month of November 2010. What remains, what needs to be covered by the end of this month, are our labor costs for the month of December 2010.

By the end of the first quarter of 2011, I want to get everybody paid for work they performed in 2010. My thoughts are that falling any further behind than that on pay is just simply not right. Either we can accomplish that or drastic cutbacks in our operations will have to be considered.


Research Associate: Carson — $400 (3 weekly articles + 1/3 of 1 quarterly study)
News Analyst: Worden — $200 (2 weekly articles)
News Analyst: D’Amato — $300 (3 weekly articles)
Social Media Specialist: Litz — $320
Media Coordinator: Knapp — $640
Director: Spangler — $120

TOTAL: $1980

We also have a domain renewal coming up and we ought to shoot for at least an additional $200, both just to have on hand and as a start on raising money to cover January 2011 pay.

So, I’ve added $2200 to the amount showing that we’ve raised so far on our fundraising widget and made that total our new, revised goal that we basically MUST meet by the end of March.

$1,445 + $2,200 = $3645 [GOAL]

In the three weeks remaining in March, can we raise that $2,200? I believe so.

Please support our work. Click on the “Contribute!” button in the fundraising widget you’ll find on any page of our web site.



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

  1. Ya'll need to get some of that Koch money up in here. Or maybe have a bake sale. The donation method is clearly not working out so well for C4SS if November payouts are being done in March…

    I don't have a dog in this (even as a "competitor" publisher), but I enjoy the posts from here on occassion and can tell from the past few months of watching these public disclosures that there's some unstable ground financially that you guys need to get sorted.
