A Fundraising Appeal
Counter-Currents Needs Your Help
Spanish translation here
The New Current Year is off to a strong start, but we need your help to maintain momentum. Counter-Currents reached 1,244,485 unique visitors in 2015, but we had only 331 unique donors keeping the whole thing afloat. Yes, I know, the great thing about the internet is all the free content. But consuming free content means being a free rider on other people’s generosity. This year, one of my resolutions is to convert more free riders to donors and book buyers.
One of our readers suggested that I make specific appeals for funds. So here we go.
In view of the fact that YouTube is a vast platform, a veritable world-unto-itself, we can dramatically increase our reach through YouTube videos. Thus Counter-Currents has revived its dormant YouTube channel, CounterCurrentsTV. We have uploaded three new videos, and there are more to come. We are producing 2 kinds of videos: (1) videos of Counter-Currents Radio interviews, which simply consist of the audio and a single static image (for example), and (2) slide show videos accompanying my readings of Counter-Currents articles and reviews (for example).
There’s a simple reason why our YouTube channel is active again: money. We went from one video in three years to three videos in one week because I found a young man with the taste and technical skills to make videos, and I am paying him for his work. These payments are really just honoraria. I could never afford to pay him by the hour. His primary motivation is ideological commitment, not money. But all too often, commitment will get us only 90% to the finish. So a concrete financial sign of appreciation can make all the difference between good intentions and a finished project. Therefore, if you want CounterCurrentsTV to thrive, make a donation today.
And if you want the rest of Counter-Currents to thrive, make a donation today.
If you want to send a non-tax deductible donation to Counter-Currents Publishing, you can make two different types of donations:
- A single donation of any size.
- A recurring donation of any size.
Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have several levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donations page for more information.
We can also customize the amount of a monthly donation.
There are several ways to make one-time donations:
- The easiest is with PayPal. Just use the following button:
- You can send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF.
- You can make a secure credit card donation direct from our Donation page.
Also, as we first announced in October of 2015, you now have two possible destinations for your donations: Counter-Currents Publishing and the Counter-Currents Foundation. The Counter-Currents Foundation is a US 501c3 educational corporation. Donations to it are deductible from US federal income taxes. The purpose of the Counter-Currents Foundation is specifically to promote scholarship and translations connected to the European New Right and allied movements. If you wish to earmark a donation to the Counter-Currents Foundation, or to discuss a particular project you would like to support, please contact me in advance at [email protected].Please give generously!
Thank you for your loyal readership and support.
