The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser We’re Getting Warmer!
(Plus Upcoming Livestreams & A Way to Deduct a Contribution to the Counter-Currents Foundation Even if You Do Not Itemize Your Return)
Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year, and we have made enormous progress since our last update. In the last week, we received 32 new donations for a total of $3,659.11, which has been matched for a total of $7,318.22. We have now received 824 donations totaling $124,380.89 for which we are enormously grateful. We are thus $25,619.11 from our goal, with $4,206.89 remaining on our matching grant! Details on the different ways you can help are below.
We will keep the fundraiser going as long as needed, but the ultimate deadline is the end of the year, just a few weeks away. We’re going to need to raise about $1,000/day until the end of the year, with Christmas, New Years’ Eve, and global political and financial insecurity competing for your attention and support.
Frankly, I am starting to worry a bit. These are tough times, with enormous economic and political instability. Such conditions are, of course, a great opportunity for our movement to grow, reaching new people and changing their minds. But these same conditions make it less likely that people will support our efforts. The only way out of this quandary is sheer idealism, assertiveness, and will to power. We have to win, and where there’s a will, there is a way. It takes an heroic effort of will to transcend one’s times, but transcending our times for a better future is what our cause is all about.

I’ve had to cancel our regular Sunday livestream because I am undergoing a surgery that day (nothing too scary).
But on Saturday, December 5, at 1:00 PST, 4:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM UK, 10:00 PM CET I will be doing a solo Ask Me Anything Livestream on the Counter-Currents Radio DLive channel: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents
Also, recordings of our livestreams are posted at Counter-Currents the following week.

- Normally, American taxpayers have to itemize their deductions to write off charitable donations when filing their federal income taxes. This means that people who file the 1040EZ form cannot take advantage of deductions for charitable giving.
- The CARES Act, which went into effect in the spring of 2020, allows you to write off $300 in charitable donations even if you do not itemize your deductions on your 2020 income tax return, which you’ll be filing next spring.
- This means that any US taxpayer can deduct up to $300 contributed to the Counter-Currents Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 educational corporation that promotes scholarship connected with the European New Right and allied schools of thought.
- All you need to do is send a check or money order to the Counter-Currents Foundation, PO Box 22638, San Francisco, CA 94122. (The Counter-Currents Foundation is a different institution from Counter-Currents, so please make sure your check or money order specifies the foundation.)
- Please email me at [email protected] for more information.
There are several ways you can donate to Counter-Currents.
Currently, we are unable to take credit card donations except through Entropy. Entropy is a site that collects “paid chat” or “superchat” donations for live streamers.
Just go to our Entropy page and select “Leave Paid Chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up. (You can make a donation even when Entropy says that we are not currently livestreaming. Just click the button that says Leave Paid Chat.)
If you want to leave a question or comment, they will be read and discussed on the next Counter-Currents Radio livestream, which air on Sundays at noon PST/3:00 PM EST on DLive: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents
If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected].
Gift cards are a useful way to make donations. Gift cards are available with all the major credit cards as well as from major retailers. You can either send gift cards as donations (either electronically or through the mail) or you can use them to make donations. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.
Checks and Money Orders
Sometimes the old ways are best. The least “de-platformable” way to send donations to Counter-Currents is to put a check or money order in the mail. Simply print and complete the Word or PDF donation form and mail it to:
Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
Thank you, Boomers, for keeping your checkbooks, envelopes, and stamps. There are youngsters reading this site who have never written a check or put a letter in the mail.
Bill Payment Services
If you wish to make monthly donations by mail, see if your bank has a bill payment service. Then all you need to do is set up a monthly check to be dispatched by mail to our PO box. This check can be made out to Counter-Currents or to Greg Johnson. After the initial bother of setting it up, you never have to think about it again.
In addition to old-fashioned paper donations, those new-fangled crypto-currencies are a good way to circumvent censorious credit card corporations.

The Counter-Currents Foundation
Note: Donations to Counter-Currents Publishing are not tax-deductible. We do, however, have a 501c3 tax-exempt educational corporation called The Counter-Currents Foundation. If you want to make a tax-deductible gift, please email Greg Johnson at [email protected]. You can send donations by mail to:
The Counter-Currents Foundation
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
Remember Us in Your Will
Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay “Majority Estate Planning” contains many helpful suggestions.
Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today.
Thank you for all you do to make Counter-Currents possible.

Trump: Without Illusions or Apologies
Blessings and good luck with your ‘procedure’ tomorrow. I’ve had a couple big ones and some small ones, and I’m still here and pretty healthy for my years. Take care.
I have a question for this afternoon Q&A — What do we do about the people who continually label us as “Haters”?
I have a question for your upcoming Q & A session in an hour or so — “What can we do to get rid of the label ‘Haters’ as referring to White Nationalists?
Sorry I posted the question twice — I’ve been having a lot of trouble with the computer. Merci. I also missed 95% of the show, especially the answers on my question about hate, so I hope it’s available somewhere. I do realize that hate occurs when people — of all types, races, and groups — do bad things around you, even threaten your life in some way — and that cannot be just ‘excused’. That is why we have police, who are assigned to take those sorts off the streets. But now, the people who love and praise ‘those sorts’ are telling us we must love everybody or there will never be peace. This is insane. And taking the police out of the equation is a further reason that ‘ordinary citizens’ turn to hate and retaliation as a means of getting back to square one — peace. Let’s keep the conversation going on this one — there’s even a new book now, called “Women Who Hate” or some such thing, about White Nationalist women. It’s described in another post a couple days ago. I’m a woman, and I don’t hate anyone, but I sure dislike being pushed around and shamed and blamed. ‘Nuff said.
Just how should you really do it?
Just commenting to say that I’m feeling pretty alienated with the direction of the website at the moment. It’s one thing to say “vote for Trump as the lesser of two evils.” But the rhetoric of the past month has gone far beyond that, as if white Americans owe Trump our votes and we need to get down on our knees and apologize for “failing” him.
I did not vote for Donald Trump. I didn’t vote for him because of the long line of broken promises. Says he’s gonna do something about internet censorship. Doesn’t do it. Says he’s gonna send in the troops to protect businesses from the rioters. Doesn’t do it. When I talk to a great many independents and moderate democrats, the complaints about Trump are often quite reasonable: he didn’t handle the pandemic well, his economic policies enriched wall street but not main street, and he’s too hawkish as far as Iran is concerned. None of them are WNs, of course, and there’s a certain kind of rhetoric you sometimes hear that would describe them as “sheeple” and traitors for their inactivity. This is supremely unhelpful, but at least defensible from an intellectual perspective. In a point of crisis, if it becomes advantageous, it should be used. But to describe them as traitors for refusing to vote for a loudmouth who almost never does what he says he’s gonna do, that’s something I cannot get on board with.
I get tired of white people, whom did not vote for Trump, as “soy boy cucks.” Donald Trump was all style, no substance. I know many people were peeved with his pandering to non-whites. I was, too. But what really cost Trump my vote was when he didn’t squash the riots. America burned and burned, and all he did was Tweet. Oh, and Trump keeps threatening martial law to re-gain control of this country. Yeah, because he will follow through this time, unlike all the other times. Say what you mean, and mean what you say, or STFU.
It is my belief that Greg sees Trump as an obstacle to be thrown in the way of those who would tear down the country, and certainly not a leader worth a damn. Trump is a tool in the toolbox of white Americans. He owes all of America, and not the other way around. I understand your position completely as I was disgusted with Trump and still am, but still think he was worth voting for simply to make it harder for Dems and Jews (a Venn diagram with a very significant overlap). Regardless of electoral related content, Counter-Currents publishes and platforms a huge amount of cultural and philosophical critique that is simply not available anywhere else, and is on the bleeding edge of it. Writers do need occasional payment and the lights need to be kept on. Otherwise, momentum that had been built up over many years of continual effort and often tangible hardship could be lost. I implore you to look at non-electoral material on CC and take a far sighted view.
Greg you know how to make us whities feel guilty. The check is in the mail. Merry Christmas!!
Thank you so much. I appreciate any and all support.
