Pledge Week

PLEDGE WEEK…. Long-time “Political Animal” readers may recall that we here at the Monthly host an annual fundraising drive. It’s back, and in this season of giving, your tax-deductible donation can make a big difference.

If you’re a regular, you know that the Washington Monthly offers the kind of cutting-edge reporting and analysis the country needs now more than ever, breaking big stories well ahead of major mainstream outlets.

But to keep us going strong, we need a little help. Your donation will not only help the magazine, but also help support this blog. In fact, we’ve already begun work on a redesign — a development more than a few of you have requested — but need some additional funds.

The Monthly is a nonprofit organization. We have print and online ads, but this only covers a small part of our expenses, which means that we depend on contributions from readers to stay up and humming. The truth is, without an annual pledge week, we can’t stay in business.

So, I hope we can count on your support. In honor of the Monthly‘s 40th anniversary, the magazine is asking for $40 donations, but any amount is welcome. If every “Political Animal” reader chipped in just $1, we’d surpass our fundraising goal.

Just click here to help out. You can donate online, through PayPal, or through the mail.

Thanks.
