The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
The Matching Grant Is in the Bag & A Final Appeal

[1]872 words

Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year, and we have been dashing through the snow toward that goal since our last update. We have now received 896 donations totaling $144,991.75, including our recent $5,000 matching grant, which is now “in the bag,” as Santa might say. We are enormously grateful for everyone’s generosity.

This means that Counter-Currents has already surpassed last year’s fundraiser by $20,000, and we have done so without a credit card processor and in the midst of a pandemic and severe economic downturn. That is a testament to the resiliency and commitment of our readers. Thank you all.

We are now a bit more than $5,000 from our goal, which means that we have to raise more than $1,000/day before our deadline, and two of those days are very hard to compete with, namely Christmas and New Year’s Eve. But Christmas is nothing if not a season for surprises. We will empty our PO Box after the new year and give you a final total. (Full information on how to give is below.)

Until then, have a safe and joyful Christmas from everyone at Counter-Currents!

A New Way for Americans to Do Tax-Deductible Donations

There are several ways you can donate to Counter-Currents.

Credit Cards

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 [3] 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 [4]

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected] [5].

Gift Cards

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

[6]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 [7] or PDF [8] donation form and mail it to:

Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA
[email protected]

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.

Crypto-Currencies

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] [2]. 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 [11]” contains many helpful suggestions.
