The dog days of summer are a slow time for movement activity and fundraising, but over the last week, our fundraiser still crept 1% closer to the goal. This year, Counter-Currents is raising $300,000. Since our fundraiser started on March 10th, we have raised $112,660.50, which is 38% of our goal. I want to thank all of those who have given so far. Full information on how to donate is below, but before you read that, I want to share a few words from Kathryn S. — Greg Johnson
162 years ago and on an August day like this, articles began to appear in British newspapers that called on Britons to raise funds and muster volunteers willing to aid Guiseppe Garibaldi in his fight for Italian unification. In order to skirt the ban on the enlistment of soldiers for a foreign army, the ads talked about “excursionists” traveling to southern Italy on holiday, “furnished with means of self-defense . . . and attired in picturesque and uniform costume.” Since the previous summer, Garibaldi’s cause had inspired enthusiastic discussion throughout the country. Meetings, conferences, chants, and panorama theater shows were all dedicated to his cause. Indeed, Garibaldi sought a “public mandate” abroad for the Italian nation. In a matter of days, thousands of Britons signed up for the “excursion” bound for southern Italy. Why was the Italian cause so popular? Why did so many ladies organize church drives, and why did so many men join Garibaldi’s British Legion? For romance and adventure, of course. But it was more than anything because of a deeply-felt and transcendent European nationalism. Sacrificing for one’s country sacralized the nation, and the idea of a unity of white sister nations also became a sacred goal.
This goal is as sacred today as it was in August 1860. Counter-Currents is the only White Nationalist site I know of that has both a generous spirit that champions worldwide white identity; as well as the realism to advance the cause of particular European peoples and nations. And like Garibaldi, we need “excursionists” willing to advance the unity of our sister nations, no “picturesque” nineteenth-century uniform required (but no one’s stopping you). Become a member, donate to Counter-Currents, and help us grow. Meeting our fundraising goal won’t just be a monetary victory, but it will also be a spiritual and psychological triumph. It will be a message that our mission has your support; that we have a reason to continue. We all here have deeply-held convictions. But we shouldn’t underestimate the bolstering effect that a successful fundraiser confers, especially when our convictions are so embattled. It is nothing less than a “public mandate” for nothing less than preserving our national homelands. Viva la nazione!
There are many ways you can help Counter-Currents:
The easiest way to send money to Counter-Currents is by e-check. It is as secure, fast, and convenient as a credit card. All you need is your checkbook.
E-checks don’t work outside the US, but we now have a new way to send recurring or one-time donations from outside the US for very low cost. For details, email [email protected].
2. Credit Cards
In 2019, Counter-Currents was de-platformed from five credit card processors. We applied to a couple of other processors but were turned down. In the process of applying, we discovered that Counter-Currents has been put on the so-called MATCH list, a credit card industry blacklist reserved for vendors with high rates of chargebacks and fraudulent transactions. This is completely inapplicable to Counter-Currents. Thus our placement on this list is simply a lie — a financially damaging lie — that is obviously political in motivation.
Currently, there are only two ways we can take credit card donations:
- CashApp as $CounterCurrents! CashApp allows you to make an instant credit card donation without a high processing fee. Plus, it gives us an encouraging mobile alert when you donate! Boost the Counter-Currents staff morale instantly! Donate via CashApp!
- Entropy, a site that takes donations and comments for livestreams. Visit our Entropy page and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up. All comments will be read and discussed in the next episode of Counter-Currents Radio, which airs every weekend.
3. Bank Transfers
It is also possible to support Counter-Currents with bank transfers. Please contact us at [email protected].
4. 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 send gift cards as donations electronically, by-email, through the snail mail. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.
5. Cash, 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.
6. 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.

8. 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 me at [email protected]. You can send donations by mail to:
The Counter-Currents Foundation
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
9. 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.
